100 Paintings in 100 Days

Graphite and acrylic painting, contemporary equestrian art

'Blue Blair'
Mixed Media on Paper

I know I have been stalling a little about announcing this but I've been trying to work out exactly when to start it. That and I'm still trying to get over my '50 Drawings in 50 Days' project from 2011/2012!

Okay, I am kidding about that but I don't think I realised exactly what I was getting into at the time. It was a fantastic learning experience and was wonderful for ensuring that I was updating this blog every day with a new image. However, it does take a lot of commitment. I highly recommend doing it to any artists out there.

And so, I have decided to make it twice as hard ths time around with 100 paintings over 100 consecutive days.
The paintings will mostly be equestrian but there may be a few randoms in there too.

The starting date of the project will be 11th March 2013.

Happy New Year!

Okay, so the tax returns are in, the Christmas decorations are away (almost!), New Year was welcomed in with a fantastic shindig at the neighbour's and now we can all look forward to a creative New Year! 

I, for one, cannot wait.

So, first of all is the business of New Years resolutions. You'll be pleased to hear that top of the agenda is to update my blog/ website/ facebook and twitter (@mathersart) accounts regularly. I'm working on the layouts today and then tomorrow I will add the new images (thank you Jennifer for reminding me!)
Hopefully there will still be time to paint after all of that.

There will also be an exciting (well, I think so!) announcement tomorrow, so please drop by again and let me know what you think of the new work and announcements.
