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.
This spot is right off the Highway near Pilar, NM. I tried to paint it once; failed miserably! Took a tip from William Wray, sanded the image down, and re-painted it; now I can sleep at night. Oil on linen 8.50" x 12.00". JLC
