Hundred days of creating art in 2019

#the100dayproject is a free art project that takes place online.

Every spring, thousands of people all around the world commit to 100 days of exploring their creativity.

At the beginning of April 2019 I saw the first posts appear on Instagram and I decided to become one of these thousands.

Tiny dots

I named my own contribution #100daysoftinydots because, well, the project had to last a hundred days and my work usually consists of lots of tiny dots.

I decided to create a small work every day, like mini canvases, magnets and cards. And maybe once in a while a sketch or an update of a larger work.

A little bit too ambitious

But after a few days of creating, photographing and posting new work, I had to admit my ambitions were too high.

In order to reduce the pressure for myself, I changed my plans. I would make a hundred works, just not in a hundred days.

On this page you will find some of the contributions as I have posted them on Instagram.

One of the new cards I painted this week. They will be added to my web shop later this week. I’m also working on getting prints available for sale. It’s been fun testing all kinds of different paper!

A landscape of painted dots.

Detail of a larger painting I’ve been working on for a couple of months. In between the commissions and the work I’ve made for my #100daysoftinydots project. I can’t wait to finish this one!

A new handmade card with tiny dots. I’ve reached day 57 of my 100 day project and I’m struggling to finish it. But I will complete it this year! And then I’m never gonna do something like this again.
