With a few days til the halfway mark, I had lost interest in my #the100dayproject theme – map making. I considered totally changing my theme but then I thought that wouldn’t be a 100 day project it would be two 50 day projects.
I love the daily illustrating part of my map making project. The computer part of putting it all together isn’t as much fun, probably because it feels like work.
I have a draft of my Charleston map, which I’d like to add a few elements to. I still have to finish my Point Lookout map (on the computer). My first map of Fire Island is completed. So how to breathe some excitement back into my project?
With a new map and a location I know well!
Today we went for a walk at Jones Beach State Park – the location of my new map. I took a bunch of photos, wrote a list of elements to illustrate, and I’m excited to start painting tomorrow!
