Hello, Sue Brown. You’re portrait 100.

“I coach. I write. I draw. I help people bring more creativity, meaning and balance into their lives and work. My clients want to be more creative: either for their own enjoyment, to think differently in their organisations, or as a career change. I work with individuals and groups.

They say the proof is in the pudding. Here’s the pudding:




I appreciate your talent, Sue. This one’s for you!

And this concludes my project. I have learned a few things during the process:

Relatively, 100 is a lot. I mean, 100 pennies is not a lot- but for me, 100 portraits is a lot.

I was able to accomplish a goal, on time.

Giving is a great way of getting.

Profile pictures usually portray the owner’s true personality. (Interesting!) For interest: http://healthland.time.com/2009/12/03/the-psychology-of-facebook-profiles/

Even though I got a bit tired half way through, I looked forward to doing each drawing.

I only threw one portrait in the trash. I learned to push through the doubt.

Doing a public blog challenge really is a great way to stay accountable, share, and get work done!

Time in:

I spent approximately 300 hours on this project, including prep time, drawing, researching and posting. (I also work full time.)

What now?

I will continue making art and posting it here, just not at the same pace. You might see something a bit different…

I am open to taking portrait commissions, all sizes. I will have a web site up shortly; until then, I can be reached at artboy68@live.ca.

Thank you for following along and all of your awesome comments. I will now have more time for reading others’ blogs!

  2. High River Arts says:

    Wow, I too thought it was a photo at first. Congratulations on completing your project!

  3. Yea!!! Congratulations on a job very well done. Great #100! Take a breath, but I trust you will find your way into all sorts of wonderful works… Here’s to new projects!

  4. Well done! A fantastic achievement. You kept us all entertained, enlightened, amazed, enriched – what will we do now?! Thank you.

  5. Jasmine says:

    Wow! I’m sure you’re relieved, but I can’t believe it’s over! (Or at least, that this part of it is over) You went out with a bang -great final portrait, it really ‘pops’. I like the article on facebook profiles… interesting that our true selves tend to prevail even when we are given the opportunity for something potentially better. To be your most honest self is to be your best self.

    Congratulations on a very successful project!

      Thanks Jasmine. I felt as I went along that this project was almost becoming a ‘social experiment’, and a topic I might explore more deeply. I think I’ll be a little less “desserts spelled backwards” now,… so yes, a bit relieved. Cheers!

  7. Sue Brown says:
