In 2010, In the midst of the grief of losing my mother and facing one of the biggest emotional roadblocks of my career, I started a daily painting blog.  It was one of those moments where I knew i had to just keep going, even though I felt like curling up in a ball forever.  For one year, I painted and wrote daily, despite the odds.  Through this practice, my technique blossomed, my heart healed, and I was able to process my grief in a constructive manner, connecting with a broader community of folks who loved me and loved my art.  The project, and my community of supporters, lifted me through the difficult times.

Today, six years later, I find myself at another crossroads.  I've left the life I once found security in and moved to a new city, which presents an entirely different set of challenges.   It's time to buckle down, and do the work I know how to do best; paint what I see, paint what's around me.  This time around, my plan is to take the things I learned and apply them, tightening up my practice, making the largest, strongest and most cohesive body of work of my life.  In the end, the year's worth of work will be collected in a book.  This was something I dreamed of for the last series, but never was able to manifest.  I'm thankful that life affords me the second chance to make good on this promise to myself.

This One-a-day series will be private.  I won't share it on Facebook or Instagram.  As my supporter and collaborator on Patreon, you will have exclusive access to the project online.  You'll be my private cheerleader, with the opportunity to steer the work and get involved in the content. You can even send me your heirlooms or precious objects to immortalize!   You see it first, and we get to work together on the evolution of the project.  I'm interested in the study of objects that define us, that occupy our space.   The things in our environment that contain meaning: What do they look like?  You tell me.

The plan is to paint 5 days a week this time, rather than 7.  Everybody needs a day off now and again, right?  Each day will have a corresponding blog entry on the private blog.

I'm excited to try this thing out with you and see where it goes.
