Starting A New Art Project: My Morning Creative Meditation Exercise

I've seen it many times, artists that paint a painting a day, or paint a certain amount of paintings within a month or a year and I think to myself, I don't think I could commit to doing that. However, I felt I needed to do something fast, creative and different than setting out to do usual larger paintings. So, I've started my own art project, "My Morning Creative Meditation Exercise".

The purpose of this daily exercise is to just move the medium in any fashion, shape or form. No agenda, no correcting, no critical thinking, or I'll fix that later. Why? To set up an environment for more creativity and see what happens in my brain. This art project is not about making beautiful or interesting paintings, but to get into the movement of creating art in free flowing way as possible. And, what will be my personal experience doing art this way first thing in the morning?

I will record my paintings each day if possible and share my personal experiences with each painting. I hope you would like to follow along this creative process of mine. Remember, this isn't about making stunning art, it's about the process. It's just an experiment, so I'm not taking myself that seriously. This is for fun and experimental purposes.

And if you have a similar creative experiment, please share.
