A few years ago I read an article in Pastel Journal about a project called 100 Variations in which artist Marla Baggetta painted the same composition over and over again. She ended up doing 120 pieces over a six month period. Go to Variation #2 to see a video her painting one of them.

It was an amazing challenge and I’ve wanted to give it a try. ┬áSince I work in several mediums, I decided not to limit myself to pastels. Also, because I work full time in a non-art related field, I am not in the studio every day, so I decided to leave the challenge open-ended and do them as I find the time and inspiration. I will add them to the gallery as as they are completed. Wonder how long it will take to get to 100!
