100 Day Project 2021

For my 100 Day project this year, I’ve challenged myself to create a small painting each day for 100 days. I’ve divided up the 100 days into different themes with five paintings in each collection (that way I can change things up and not get bored).  The project started on January 31, 2021.  Here is my progress so far
