Design Boot Camp 2022: Demo Painting

Here's a look at the large (19x24) demo piece I made during Design Boot Camp this year:

And the final version displayed along with some of my previous work:

As you can see, all of my work kind of "goes together" no matter the format, content, or techniques used. This is what I think many people mean when they refer to "style."  A big part of Design Boot Camp is helping each participant drill down to some essentials of what his or her style is.

One of my personal goals for 2022 is to get back to working large. In the last few years, I've been so busy running my business and being a mom that I feel like I've totally stepped away from creating anything larger than 9x12. Smaller pieces are simply easier and quicker to get done. But, this year I'm severely limiting my teaching schedule and focusing on making bigger art!

Last month I was thinking of starting a #100dayproject about working larger, but that seemed like pressure I didn't need in my life. I love #the100dayproject but it can feel very performative at times -- at least for me. And performance anxiety makes me take fewer risks and make more mediocre stuff.

Thanks for reading!
