What’s the Word for…

March 9, 2010

What’s the word for “a painting a day”?

A friend just asked me if there was a word for "a painting a day." I restrained my inner wise-ass and didn't blurt out, "Yes, "prolific."

We both still wonder if there is a word for the activity of painting a painting a day. So many artists are involved in that activity and blogging about it that I have to believe someone has given it a name.

If you know of such a word please let me know in the comments.

If not maybe we need to make one up?

    Most of the people I see who do ‘something’ as day call it Project 365. I think it started out as a photography thing but a lot of different crafts and arts have adopted it the last couple of years/
    Personally, I like to affectionately refer to it as ‘burn out’.

    Is it too smartass to just call it “daily painting”?

    Only one a day? And you can stop anytime you want? It’s not “paintaholic” then. That would be the painter, anyway, and not the daily item.

    No, Nita it’s not. And I’m laughing (but you know that’s two words!).

    I’ve had the most fun with the blog today, that’s for sure!

    Carolyn, it seems like we do need something like that.

    It’s looking like someone will have to invent a term!

    Overkill?

    veejae, nah, it’s not overkill. Most daily painters would probably say one painting a day isn’t enough—and if they had the time to do more they would.

    Arscotidie. It’s a word I just made up by combining the Latin for “daily art.” It sounds pornographic, doesn’t it? The process of setting up a daily painting regimen would be called “getting your arscotidie in gear.”

    Tom, I love you! I will even give you a pass on the next 5 (five, count them) puns!

    Depending on how you say it, or rather how I am saying it sitting here talking at the screen, it also sounds a little like pirate talk!

    What could be better: pirates and daily art.

    Thanks!
