100 Day Art Project 2023

New Shapemaking – Feb. 22 – Jun. 2.

This is my fifth time doing a 100 Day Project and my fourth “Shapemaking” challenge. I’m exploring how seemingly simple shapes can be created and combined to make something new and unique. Every day for 100 consecutive days, I create an abstract hard-edge, flat color composition and post it on Instagram (and Facebook). I’m enjoying the ride and pleased with the results. Take a look.

So now the floodgates are open to the delight of pure form, whatever its origin. Anything goes.
