This is when a body of work starts feeling like a series as the wall is getting filled with the beautiful faces of grandmothers and I love it! Do I question the quality of my work sometimes? You betcha...that is a daily occurrence. But I also find that I'm less critical of imperfections when I see the work as a collection rather than looking too closely at each painting separately. The first time I completed a 52 WEEKS project I realized that early on, probably the first 7 paintings, I felt very uncomfortable with my skill set but, as the project moved along, and once I hung the work, I started seeing the strength in it. That's what keeps me going each time I begin a project like this. It's also been interesting to see how many pieces end up in several shows - and that helps me to see the beauty in each piece, too. In both my 'Heroes' and 'Nasty Women' projects, I painted images from different perspectives, both close-ups of the subjects and more figurative as well, but this time I have decided just to create a collection of portraits which almost reminds me of a yearbook of sorts. I really like it.
