Seascapes Project
In 1980 I started a project to paint one 5" x 7" seascape, quickly in about an hour, each day for one year. It was an experiment to see what would come of the product of 365 days work, each day reflecting something about myself or making art or the universe ... or not. There was no preconceived notion about what would come out or what i would do with the paintings. Late in the "year" of the project life intruded over art as it usually does, especially when living on bare margins. I had to suspend then cancel continuance. In 1986 i resumed in an attempt to finish out the 365 days of work. In 2013 i had the opportunity to work in an open large studio environment for 4 months totally uninterrupted by anything. I resuscitated this project (and many others) and found there was five groupings or paintings that run sequentially, except one non-sequential grouping, that make sense for an installation. This page shows photos of the five mocked up arangements that I am working on to show, in a single installation, in the next few years. I need about $1000 - $1500 to restretch all the canvases on new stretcher bars and build a support system to adjoin the works in an appropriate manner. The works you see were shot with a crummy camera, on the floor, but are a fair representation of the resulting appearance, short looking much better suspended off the mall an inch or two. Any art benefactor or interested gallery that would like to support me finishing this project and showing in an adequate blank gallery space, please contact me.

There would be two large 7 day x 15 week grids, one for Spring 1986 and one for Summer/Fall 1986, (105) paintings in each. One grid of (49) paintings 7 days by 7 weeks. A straight line of (49) end to end paintings that would run 30 ft. And an evenly spaced, non-touching, arrangment of 7 x 4, (28) paintings.
In all over (300) paintings.
