It feels like kismet, you know. The very first post about my year long project is on Valentine’s day.
For a long time, it seemed like I had a love hate relationship with val’s day. I only really started enjoying val’s day when I stopped hoping and wishing for this fairytale love story to happen to me. It was the year I accepted that I may never have that experience and that that is actually ok that val’s day became a fun day(I was part of the organising team for a val’s party and we painted the school red…literally).
Since then, it has become a day that I mark with friends, loved ones and now, in my studio, making hearts. In my bid to challenge myself in 2018, I decided to make a heart every day. Yes. 365 hearts should be my end result by december 31st, 2018.
I won’t lie. It has been hard keeping up with it as I have other projects I am working on, building both my portfolio and my business as an artist. But this is mine, you know. The more I work on it, the more ideas come and there are 365 ways to make a heart. This is just one of them.
There are more hearts to show you, I promise to do that in the coming days. I am still not sure what to call my project though. I am kinda between ‘Queen of Hearts’ or ‘My Heart Project’. Hmmm, maybe something else. What do you think?
