Creation a Day - My Project for the New Year

Over the last few years, I have been quite inspired by the dedication that some fellow artists/bloggers have had to 365 day experiments. In particular, an artist I do not know personally, Duane Keiser in his Painting A Day Project http://duanekeiser.blogspot.com/ which continues on as less regular but none the less breathtaking fashion and one I am happy to call a friend, the talented photog April Chandler http://www.aprildotphotography.com/. In the last few years, such projects have become pretty common but I don't feel like it has become cliche or tiring. When I follow such projects, I see each person hone their skills and grow with their experience. I also see them branch out and try new techniques and risks others with less dedication might not.

Taking these as inspiration as well as the birth of 2009, I start Creation a Day. Call it ADD, but I have so many ideas and things I would like to try whether it is jewelry design, painting, crafting or sculpting, I intend to create something by my hand each day.
Wish me luck!

Day 1: Turquoise polymer clay, gold leafed and sealed.
