I have a much neglected art journal. It’s an awesome thing with a red hardcover and roomy pages…blank pages…I decided it deserves more attention.

I’ve put together a 30 Day Art Challenge for myself. I’m posting it here in case anyone would like to join me. It would be great if anyone wanted to join.

Art is a relative term, so my intent is to include pieces that may be graphic, written, or maybe even audio. There are no rules, because hard-fast  rules for me (in such circumstances) can promote failure. So it’s all about flexibility… so if you only want to do one and make it an essay, then so be it! Go hog wild and do day five on day 25 for all I care… just have some fun. I love art and the way I see it, even on my own this can only make me happy.

So here’s the rules:

  • It starts August 1, 2016
  • A list of daily cues is below
  • If you want to participate every day, or willy nilly, go ahead
  • I will put up a link daily
  • There are no rules.


30 days of  cues to create a daily form of art:

  1. Who are you?
  2. Favorite book character
  3. What are you looking at right now?
  4. PURPLE!
  5. You created a monster!
  6. What do you miss?
  7. What’s your superpower?
  8. What couldn’t you live without?
  9. What’s your favorite movie?
  10. Cityscape
  11. Worst food ever!
  12. A favorite childhood toy
  13. Water, water everywhere!
  14. If you could go anywhere in the world?
  16. Kitchens of the future
  17. Killer sheep
  18. DOODLES!
  19. X-RAYS
  20. YELLOW!
  21. Is that on fire?
  22. New inventions
  23. Treehouse living
  24. I Can Fly
  25. UFOs, Martians, and Saucers
  26. Promote an unlikely product
  27. Favorite music
  28. The book jacket on your autobiography
  29. Blind dates
  30. GO WILD!

  1. One of the many things I LOVE about you, Ivy–is that you make your challenges/prompts…and perhaps even life..Do-able! Thank you for adding fun and inspiration to our days 🙂


  2. HI, Ivy:

    I hope you are feeling better, and that your Joule dog is turning out to be the jewel you though she would be! As in powerful but not too shocking!

    I am aware the “30 day art challenge” is happening. Right now.

    And I am missing it. Entirely.

    There is a simple explanation for my failure to participate in the activity.

    We decided to move. On virtually no notice at all. Took a look, made a decision, and started packing.

    Now we are in our new suite, but are far from being “moved in.” There is a lot of stuff just “sitting there,” waiting to be lovingly placed in its new resting place. That said, the majority of things are in their new location. It’s just that a lot of mine aren’t, and the development (or, more precisely, lack thereof) is starting to bother me. As well, we have no internet for the next ten days, and that has cut me off from a lot of things people! It’s the people I miss most.

    The only significant drawback to this place is its “No dogs” policy. In fact, the “No pets at all” policy. Sigh. So much for getting a pet Kangaroo! Or perhaps a pet Moose.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
