This work is the first incarnation of my Year in Color series, which developed from a desire to give an abstraction (time), a literal and visual shape. To create a visual record of time, 6 x 6 inch canvas panels are used to represent each day. The colors were derived from a palette of primary colors: red, blue, yellow, and white. The color for each day begins with the previous day's color, and develops from responses to events, coupled with a curiosity about and love of color. Travel days are an exception to this color structure: they are all the same color of gray; as they represent interruptions and transitional days in the year.
