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 piece was an attempt to capture the feel of being up on a higher plane, looking out over a valley. The color palette is odd, I came up with it looking at Frank Tenney Johnson's work. Oil 6.00" x 9.00" $firstname.lastname@example.org
January's theme is late evening and sky studies. After a two week break from painting I feel rusty. I must do 115 paintings in less than 80 days to acheive 365 paintings in one year, (still quite possible). Oil 4.00" x 10.00" SOLDj@jonconkey.com
