It has been some time since my last post and things still haven’t slowed down. 2014 was super busy near the end and next thing I knew it was a new year already, and 2015 hasn’t started off any slower. I’ve joined a group of local Okanagan Artists in a new challenge to create everyday. This is different from the one I joined in on last year (#opus6x6), as this one is about showing what your up to on a day by day basis. This new group has set a goal of a whole year of posting daily creativity… you can follow the progression on any social media website by searching #opusartdaily and if you live in the Okanagan feel free to join us and post your works using the above hashtag.
Not that one challenge is enough, I’ve joined another! Opus Art Supplies has posted a challenge to all artists to do a 28 day challenge for the month of February. Same concept as the one I joined did last year, one completed work per-day. This challenge is based on the idea that it takes 28 days to build a habit.. so lets build a good habit together. This art challenge is world wide and has been super fun to both do and watch. The hashtag for this one is #opusdailypractice, and it is not to late to join in!
I hope so see your creations!

By All Means Paint is an amazing video that Opus Art Supplies has put together based off of Vincent Van Gogh`s quote. I am so very honored that they ask me to create an image for this video. I created a painting of one of my squids, and my word was Means. So check it out and let me know what you think. The video is super cool and bound to stir up some emotion. Check out the video at http://www.opusartsupplies.com/byallmeanscreate and Tweet your thoughts: @OpusArtSupplies #ByAllMeansCreate or contact me directly @trinaganson
I am looking forward to your thoughts and perhaps your own interpretation of Vincent Van Gogh’s quote.
Keep Making your Marks,
