Discipline, direction, design all come to mind when I think about why 365 five inch squares exist.
Looking around for a means to focus learning skills, I decided an independent study conducted with myself as student and advisor would fulfill the quest.
Explore techniques, materials, and composition daily for one year. My 5-inch square sketches in the journal were each developed into individual works using any technique/materials necessary.
Evaluate the work with consideration of direction to concentrate on developing a body of work over the next decade.
Exhibit the collection. Document the process and lessons. Complete the squares for sale.
