LEFTOVERS & PALETTE GREMLINS 2017

LEFTOVERS & PALETTE GREMLINS 2017

Creative exercises can help keep an artist focused and productive. That was the thought going into 2016 with the Leftovers & Palette Gremlins project…and boy did the project prove essential in a year teeming with distraction.

Looking back it’s hard to believe I posted a new work every week—mostly on time—but there they are, all 52 still available to view. The project was so well received that I’m committing to do it again in 2017.

This year I’ll be publishing in semi-regular installments, not quite weekly because of time commitments like the exhibition at the Riverside Art Museum.
