Time for another recap for the 100 Day Project!
For my project this year, I’ve challenged myself to create a small painting each day for 100 days (I’m slightly off track but still moving forward). I’ve divided up the 100 days into different themes with five paintings in each collection.
During the last update I had just started Collection 4 of Owego scenes. Since then I have finished Collections 4, 5, and 6!
Collection 4: Owego Scenes
Here’s a look at the paintings from the Owego collection. Each of these paintings was featured as part of my The Beauty Right in Front of Us Guest Artist Spotlight at Owego’s Gallery 41 in March. They all center around the Owego Riverwalk in downtown Owego, New York along the Susquehanna River.
Collection 5: Lake Scenes
Collection 5 features lake scenes. The Finger Lakes is full of beautiful lake scenes year round, but especially during the summer time. This collection shows locations from Seneca Lake and Keuka Lake, but these are views that will feel familiar no matter what lake you’ve visited.
The third and fifth paintings of this collection are available to view (and purchase) through the Member Show at Community Arts of Elmira through the end of May. They have gallery hours 11am-1pm Fridays and Saturdays.
Collection 6: Quarry Farm
I had the opportunity this past summer to spend time at Quarry Farm in Elmira, New York as part of the Clemens & the Pen: Studio Session at Quarry Farm event. It was inspiring to visit the summer home of Sam Clemens (Mark Twain) and see where he created some of his most famous works. These five paintings resulted from this year’s visit. The first two of the series are currently on view at Community Arts of Elmira in a special exhibition in the Przygoda Gallery featuring artwork from the artists who participated in the Clemens & the Pen event.

I’m excited to see where this project goes this year! You can follow along in real time over on social media and catch up on my progress so far, interactive art shows, or blog recaps on my 100 Day Project page.
