36 Paintings

Here are some photos from Saturday, when I hung 36 paintings in one Chicago park. It’s the first time I put multiple paintings in a single place and it was a different experience to step back and see the project as more of an installation.

Painting #200

It’s been forever since I’ve posted as I’ve been working on other projects the past few months, but I have no plans to stop giving away paintings! Crossing the 200 paintings mark feels like a huge milestone and I’m happy to say I’ve made 230 paintings to date. This winter, I’m focusing on sewing together bright flower shapes to hang in the grey-brown landscape of a Chicago winter. To celebrate my January birthday, I’m going to hang 36 of these paintings – one for each year – to celebrate my gratitude for life and to do something fun and bright on a cold day. Hopefully, this display will brighten up someone else’s day, too.

Here’s the 200th painting!
