I've been thinking about a daily art project for a while, I did it for a month a few years ago and have been inspired by the examples of Kathy Loomis, Uta Lenk and others on this site and partly spurred on by recent drawing classes where I could visibly see improvements due to regular practice.I've decided to use a colour catcher a day in some way. Apart from recycling, they are versatile and lend themselves to a variety of different techniques and materials including stitch
I've also got an awful lot of them despite using them for various projects:I've drawn on them with neocolour crayons; scribbled on them with biro a la Boetti; collaged with fabric scraps while on retreat responding to local landscape; used inkjet printing and stitch for 'Distressed Doors' sketchbook project and for Shinkansen based on photos taken at speed from a train.
Rather than using them as part of of a larger project (like Margaret Cooter and her 'Journey to the Studio' ) , at this stage I think I might fold each in half and make a monthly stab-stitched book but I'm not aiming to set rules just see how it goes. I've already had to adapt as after a few days of drawing tree rings, the lurgy settled on my chest and with a temperature of over 38 C , retired to bed. I rallied a bit yesterday and caught up on the previous 3 days with a bit of frottage using crayons (the results look vaguely like cells!)
I've now got an ear infection so perhaps that might form the inspiration (it wouldn't be the first time...)
