This entry marks my 365th…which completes my commitment to this blog which i started exactly a year ago. When I was naming this blog, the first few names I picked were already taken so my husband suggested this name– Daily Dose of Art. As fate would have it -the domain name was approved. So that’s how it all started.
So I went ahead with it, 365 days of it! Even if it meant little sleep, diminished time and energy to play with my toddler, researching-designing-preparing posts weeks ahead when I had other projects at hand, figuring out where i could find internet access while traveling…the list goes on.
So you may ask –why did I do it? what did I learn from it? was it worth it?
Why did I do DDOA? Primarily because I needed some semblance of creative life while busy taking care of my toddler.
What did I learn from DDOA? I learned that in life those who plan the best are those who get the most tasks realized. When I had a clear idea of the flow of the DDOA week, it was easier to bring a week’s posts to completion.
Art is not something confined to a frame or inside a gallery. It is in everything and everywhere, but it is up to us and how we perceive beauty and novelty.
Creative minds and resourceful folks are everywhere inspiring, changing, moving our world forward, ever forward!
Was DDOA worth it? Much as this has been a lot of sacrifice and commitment, I must say it has been a great journey! So it is my earnest hope that you have enjoyed the 365 daily doses of art as much as I have.
Thank you for making DDOA a part of the year that has passed. I wish us all an open heart to new endeavors and experiences in this new year 2013!
As I close the doors of Daily Dose of Art
I thought it would be fitting to share with you this phenomenal use of recycled doors
as a building facade.
“South Korean Artist Choi Jeong-Hwa used 1000 brightly colored recycled doors to transform a bland 10-story building into an eye-popping visual indulgence. Jeong-Hwa is a master of using found objects to make provocative spaces, and the project is one of his most ambitious attempts to place normal things in an extraordinary way. The doors stretch up the scaffolding of the mid-rise, giving the hulking mass a pixelated charm.”
