ART on Friday - First of 2017

2017 has arrived and with it new hopes and dreams. I have started a new 365 art practice (more below) and am once again taking part in a number of challenges. This year I hope to finally delve into more of my art books and create more projects.

5 in 65
I turn 65 tomorrow and I am beginning a number of projects related to 65. One of them is to create 65 canvases or projects using books and pinterest to spur my creativity.
 I am looking forward to this challenge.

Colour Me Positive
This challenge is continuing through LuLuArt. I have enjoyed the weekly theme and the chance to create art in my journal. I am starting a new one - an altered old songbook.

The first quote was "When you can't control what's happening, challenge the way you respond to what's happening. That's where your power is."
So true. But the words of Viktor Frankl have always touched me and I used his quote for my journal. LOVE is what will save us in the end.

365 ART
This year for my daily challenge, I hope to do a small sketch each day. A tiny bit of art a day will add to a lot of art by the end of the year. It will also help my sketching/drawing skills.
Here's the first week:
