painting daily- journals at the source

I was sorting through my journals because I had to take them down from their home, the top shelves, to prepare for renovation of my art office/storage area.  I thought I had 30 journals. After counting, I found that I had 130, of all different sizes.

The show explores the value of reflection upon the my daily life, be it in written word, or hand drawn sketches. The visceral impact that the past  observations have had on my current work are impossible to overlook.
