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.
Artists and musicians make great models, artists know what looks good, and how to make a "comfortable sit" for a spell. Musicians on the otherhand, become so engrossed in what they are playing, become oblivious to what the painter is doing. JLC
