Work in Progress: Dates in a Life Walking Project 2021

New work in progress, through April, in my Dates in a Life Walking Project 2021, a year-long painting documenting the number of steps I walk, and the number of flights of stairs I climb, each day. The black icons represent 0-9999 steps, red is 10,000-19,999, and if I walk 20,000 or more steps it's a yellow icon.

Work in Progress: Dates in a Life Walking Project 2021

New work in progress, through March, in my Dates in a Life Walking Project 2021, a year-long painting documenting the number of steps I walk, and the number of flights of stairs I climb, each day. The black icons represent 0-9999 steps, red is 10,000-19,999, and if I walk 20,000 or more steps it's a yellow icon.

We're had a change at home which means I'm not running up and down the stairs as much as I had been over the past year since the pandemic started. The five days with either of the two blue background colors reflect 0-5 and 6-10 flights of stairs those days. The green backgrounds are 11-15 and 16-20 flights, yellow/orange backgrounds are 21-25 and 26-30, and the red background, which is 31 or more, I did do on February 12th.

New Work: Covid Vaccine Prize

Covid Vaccine Prize
mixed media on stiffened fabric
11.5" x 9.75"
2021

The dots in the center panel of this painting represent the day I got my second Covid Vaccine at my local Community Senior Center with 308 others, and also when a dear friend got her first shot at the same location. The white dots represent all my family members and friends who are waiting for theirs.

The white dots on the left and right side panels represent the millions of others across the US who are waiting for their first shot, and the silver dots represent those waiting for their second.

The background fabric is intentionally blue. Now that I’ve had my vaccines, and when I hear of others getting theirs, it feels like we’re all winning first prize, and the future feels brighter.

New Work in Progress

 

New work in progress about my getting my second Covid Vaccine with 308 others, a dear friend getting her first at the same location, and all my friends and family who are still waiting along with millions of others. I hope to be finished in the next few days. I’ll have a better artist’s statement by then as well.
