Another 100 Day Challenge Completed!
This year’s 100 Day Project ends tomorrow: Wednesday, July 10, 2019. It’s been an amazing experience leading 50+ women in the challenge this year. I created a private Facebook group for us to ensure we’d have a safe place to post our work, provide encouragement and cheer each other on each day. The breadth and variety of artwork produced is inspirational and incredibly motivating.
The 100 Day Project was started over 20 years ago by Michael Beruit, a professor at the Yale School of the Arts. He asked his students to pick ONE THING, one creative endeavor, and repeat it every day for 100 days in a row. It’s become a huge deal online every year and I’ve been participating and/or leading teams of creatives who want to participate for several years now.
Here are some amazing highlights from students who participated in my group this year. It’s been incredibly inspiring to see their work develop and to see the breadth of art created. Over 50 people participated in my group this year and I’m only highlighting five of them. I may have to publish a book in order to celebrate each and every one of them properly!
Here are some pieces from Jodena Beard. I love the clean lines and cheerful colors.
Asha Menghra created a series of portraits. Each one is unique and as a collection, they are truly amazing.
Barbara Moore created beautiful pieces and, from time to time, she included photographs of places she was visiting during the challenge. The contrast between her choice of rich color palettes and her sepia-toned photographs is gorgeous.
Cindy Merrill’s pieces are bright and showcase her sense of humor and fun-loving spirit.
Jennifer Gilbert’s work is detailed and intense. She works with Alzheimer patients and doing art everyday is both a release and a welcome distraction. She often photographed her pieces with the tools she used to create them. Her work is stunning.
This is just a small snapshot of the work created by the amazingly talented women in this challenge group. It was a joyful and inspiring experience from start to finish. CONGRATULATIONS to each and every one of them. I can’t wait to do this again next year.

My creative inspiration comes from a lifetime of observation. I grew up in Paris on the Place St. Sulpice and walked to school through the Luxembourg gardens. And that was only the beginning… Learn more by watching the video on my About page.
