My 100paintings project in 2016 went very well and there were two things that really stood out to me. First, I loved the consistent engagement with viewers. It was exciting to get so many responses to the work and I had many interesting conversations online and off. It kept me motivated and focused on the project. Secondly, I was really excited by the often surprising direction the work took. I am very proud of the paintings and I'm currently working on some large pieces that are directly influenced by these painting. SO, because of that, I'm doing my 50paintings2017project of 50 shaped paintings. This is a new way of working for me and it has been interesting to see how the work evolved.
