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.

# 70 Daffodils
Flowers are one of the most challenging subjects to paint, to capture their form and delicate nature is tricky work. This month will certainly help my ability to understand these subtle glories. JLC
