My name is Julie. I started this project to commiserate with my teenage son who is “being forced” to read Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I loved the book when I read it in high school, a number of years ago. (Although I felt the same way my son does about “being forced” to read it at first.) Hopefully he will grow to at least like it!
I read Great Expectations so long ago that I remember very little about the story. I decided to re-read it along with my son. However I will read only ONE page per day. Yes, I DID say one page per day. Yikes! This is going to take me forever! I am always up for a good read and always looking for more ways to keep actively creative. So I decided that every day I will create some kind of art to reflect how I feel about what I read.
This will take me a little over a year! I figure I can easily read one page a day. No problemo! But carving out the time to sit and create a piece of artwork every day will be my biggest challenge. (HELLOOO… I work and have two kids!) But I am up for the challenge!
