My initial plan was to create 49 images of Dublin Creators Farm at 4"x4" each, mounting the lot on a 42"x42" board that is collaged with construction plans. 49 paintings does not cause me pause, it actually sounds like very few to be completed over a full year. I consulted with my friendly neighborhood shop teacher about building the base for this piece. He suggested I lay this out in paper before he started to build. Thank goodness he did because 49 paintings at 4x4 each is a really large piece and might just be overkill on the idea. As such, I have decided that 36 paintings will do the trick and be less obnoxious while achieving my desired effect.
Now, if only the farm could be planted...

During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
