#100DaysofDotDotDot Update

· Painting,About Us,society6

Earlier this year, I participated in #the100DayProject. #the100DayProject is a worldwide movement encouraging creativity. This project also provides a source of much-needed momentum to start and keep going. It was dreamed up by artists and makers Elle Luna and Lindsay Jean Thomson. You pick one thing you want to do every day for 100 days and then you do it.

While I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with all of the pieces I created, I wanted to create them anyway. I missed painting and I figured this was a great time, with a world’s worth of momentum, to begin again.

I thought I’d perhaps sell them through our Society6 shop or try to make a coffee table book.

Regardless of what I did with them, Nathan, of course, had to photograph the finished paintings because art is not completely done until it’s documented.

After that, it took me a while, but I figured out what I wanted to do with what I made.

I listened to my own advice and made an artist website! I’m thrilled to introduce you to the new McGinnis and Bean.

Our new artist website, McGinnis and Bean, houses recent art by myself and Nathan. The full collection of the #100DaysofDotDotDot paintings are available as either original artwork or a digital print. Select photography pieces from Nathan can be purchased in two sizes with two frame options. More will be added as time goes on.

And we do still have specialty gift items available in our Society6 shop where you buy notebooks, cards, travel mugs, or even wall clocks with our artwork on it!

I’ve been struggling to call myself an artist (because I hadn’t painted in a long time) but that’s what I am.

Creating and selling my work feels super legit and I’m thrilled to be able to share these pieces of myself with you.
