If you’re just joining us- allow me to catch you up. My name is Amanda Jeanne, and I’m an intuitive abstract artist working on my very first solo art exhibition. To aid me in the preparation process, I asked chatGPT to give me a weekly breakdown of tasks to complete in order to be ready for my show opening on June 26. Follow along to see how it goes!
Week 2-3: “Start creating new artworks. Work on the pieces you plan to showcase at the exhibition. Make sure to allocate enough time for each artwork, depending on its complexity.“
I’ve already begun work on several of the upcycled canvases that I rescued from languishing in my storage unit. It’s a bit of a different process, continuing work on a pre-existing pieces rather than starting with a fresh canvas. Took me a while to get into it.
But get into it I did, and I’m happy to report that I’ve already completed (or near completed) another four paintings.
I’ve also managed to find my theme! Halfway through last week I was feeling a bit dejected. I didn’t particularly like the piece I had on my easel, I was feeling stuck, nothing seemed to be working. But I reminded myself that I do my best thinking while I’m painting, so I just had to trust the process and keep creating.
And next thing you know- I’ve found my theme. Balance and transformation. Ou en français, Équilibre et Transformation. More on that later.
