A "Journal of Paintings" by Jon Conkey,
Themeworks was a "one-year-long" record of my progress in the art of "oil painting", and an attempt to paint 365 paintings in one year. Changing the monthly theme allowed me to focus on subjects I may not have otherwise painted. As an artist, I was looking for discovery and breakthroughs in my works through this daily practice.

# 65 Watchful Hawk
As I am painting this hawk, a huge Tiger Swallowtail is flying all over the place, everytime I try to get a look, he's gone. Sooner or later, he will sit still long enough for me to get a glimpse, he must be over five inches across. JLC
