Daily Painting
Project

I mark each day with a painting. After 2500 days (including Christmas) I've no intention of stopping. Painting, for me, is a physical act of being able to leave proof that I was there. Having cancer as a young adult, I discovered living is not just surviving. I wanted a way to embrace each day, no matter how typical, so without excuse or hesitation, I begin each day by painting. The small, intimate paintings of ordinary, everyday subjects reflect an optimism that outlasts the fleeting light and fragile objects. I incorporate strong and exaggerated light sources, allowing the light to fill the empty spaces where something else could be. The paintings create a structural framework of self-preservation. Each of these daily exercises is a vital component of the project’s ongoing, infinite progression
