Day 1: 30-Day Self-Portrait


The Project
A 30-Day Self Portrait using one closeup and one overall photo and words to capture my art process, the day, my mood
Goals: to be vulnerable, honest, poetic, gain insight, create discipline, capture my process, engage in a public dialogue with private thoughts

  • covering/revealing
  • I cut open a pillow in my studio to see what was inside: a mix of feathers and stuffing
  • I cut apart three jeans and a gi pant. All white. I am sewing them back together.
  • What if my art is never enough? (At least while I’m in grad school? “Then you’ll have to be satisfied with the path.” Thanks, Tom
  • That’s great because that’s where I am now.
  • Ask “what if” questions. Thanks Centa.
  • Be grateful.
  • I’m truly inspired by Linda Geary’s book Studio Visit of artful and poetic portraits of her conversations with 100 people.
  • I want to be up early tomorrow.
