I’ve moved the study of the Northampton Train Station into the “is it done category”. I pull up the tape and set it up where I can see it for a few days.
Sometimes I find that I need to go back and do some more work. Other times I start thinking about what mat or frame will set it off.
I have posted about my search for a software etc that I can use as a data base. I’ve tried a number of things including spread sheets, data bases, Evernote and a couple of other things. Right now I am trying Trello, (Recommendation link: https://trello.com/rennatatropeano/recommend) Disclosure, For every person I get to join Trello, They give me a free month of Trello Gold, up to 12 months, not that I really have a clue at this point what that really means.
So far I am really enjoying it as it is very visual and I find it easier to add information and pictures in a single place. For example, my Trello card on the above painting has links to the Meet up event where I started this painting, and links to posts where I have shared it as a work in progress. I can move or copy cards from private boards to public boards. I can add the information as I work on a project, as well as being able to add checklists, files, due dates.
I am using it as my project planning and database tool, but it also can be used to work with others. I can’t really speak to that as I have not used that functionality, but it seems like it would work very well.
I am very excited that it is finally Art Every Day Month! I am looking forward to this challenge. It is the one that really brought me back into touch with my art. As a mother I had pretty much put it on a back shelf in favor of things I could do with my daughters. Each November I take part and the process always inspires me. I recommend that you give it a try.
That is it for today, as I can’t wait to see what others are doing.
