#belove365

Greetings and salutations.

Listen, this has been a bitch of a year.  I don’t need to tell you that, you KNOW.  It’s been a bitch.

For the last part of this year I’ve been trying to find a project to keep me motivated.  I have a hard time sticking to stuff, if you haven’t noticed.  I get easily distrac… SQUIRREL!!

Ahem.

Specifically, I was really craving the dedication of a 365 project (i.e., something daily), but I couldn’t figure out what, exactly, I wanted to do.

So I was driving to a show this past weekend, and I was listening to the Jealous Curator podcast.  It’s awesome.  Highly recommend.  She was talking to Vincent Serritella, who had done a 365 project where he gave away a drawing every day.  My inner “love to give away”er was entranced.  Enthralled.  Amazed.  I thought, THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO!!!

Then I spent a few days thinking about it, dreaming about it, pondering how I could actually make this happen and what I would actually do.  I knew I wanted to paint.  I knew I wanted to work on lettering.  I just didn’t know what THEME I wanted.

Then the election happened.  *insert game show “you just lost a million dollars” noise here*  I felt this thing pushing me more and more, and I felt my own “be love” mentality pushing its way into it.

So I’m doing it.  365 quotes about love.  A painting per day.  To give away.  On my Facebook page.  Every. Damn. Day.

Here’s the first painting.  Today’s quote is about love and pain.

SO.  Here’s the deal-i-o.

Watch my Facebook page.  I might upload at noon, I might upload at 11:30 p.m.  Right now it’s 12:42 a.m. on 11/11, and I’m talking about the painting I did earlier in the evening on 11/10.  YOU NEVER KNOW.  ANYWAY.  Watch the page.  First person to comment gets it.  That’s it!

They’re all going to be watercolor and ink on 4 x 6 watercolor paper, easy to frame.  I am keeping high-res scans, so I may do prints or something at a later date.  Or maybe they’ll just be lost to the void of my Google Drive.  Only time will tell!!

At any rate, I hope these little bits of love from my heart to yours make some sort of difference in your life.  Even if they invoke a smile for 3.2 seconds, I’ll take it.

xoxoxo,
Sarah
