Inspiration Monday: Lisa Congdon

I first became aware of Lisa Congdon when I saw an article about her book and blog, A Collection A Day, where she showcased one of her collections with photographs or drawings each day of 2010. It was certainly an intriguing premise to have a project that spanned the year and I've followed her blogs since.

A Collection a Day by Lisa Congdon

This year her project is 365 Days of Hand Lettering, but I found more than just the year-long projects inspirational about Lisa. She didn't start painting and become a professional artist until she was in her 30s. Her paintings are often a colorful look at everyday things.

Her pencil drawings are detailed and whimsical like the B below. I'm looking foward to taking Lisa's Get Your Paint On class starting next week for further inspiration! I'll post some of my results here!

  1. I can't imagine coming up with something different every day of the year! I'd get tired before I even started! That's dedication and perseverance and imagination all rolled into one.
