2009 Picture of the Day: Year End Roundup

JANUARY 5, 2010
In addition to about 50 assignments a year, for the past 8 years I have been trying to do a painting for myself every day. I don't always have the time but this year I was able to do quite a few. As always, this has been an effort to develop my own voice and abilities, and I think this was a year that I actually made some real progress towards that end. So here's my year end round up of personal work: Its not everything but most of it from the past year. If you keep telling people the same thing, ie "Work hard and eventually you will have a breakthrough"...eventually you might even listen to yourself.

2009 was a year of highs and lows, real excitement and total frustration- but I feel very optomistic that 2010 is going to be a very good year!

One thing different this year, I did alter the time limit of 30 minutes that I had been working under, when doing paintings outside of the studio. However, everything here was completed in one session.
