Openings:100

Daily life is full of routine. The dictionary defines routine as that which is customary, regular, unvarying or predictable. but when I think about the routine of my daily life it is not truly unvarying. Each moment is actually full of small variations brought about by factors outside of my control.

Unlike a machine where small differences can result in things going terribly wrong I usually absorb these daily aberrations seamlessly into the appearance of routine. But these small differences do exert influence. And if I choose to become attentive to them the smallest moment becomes excitingly new.

One hundred miniature paintings. Each  3 1/2 inches square, each with the same limited palette, each painted individually.  Assembled they represent a painting routine practiced over time. Each painting is a unique representation of the ephemeral moments experienced: each moment extraordinary and never to be repeated.
