The Ongoing Series

The Very Rich Hours series dates from June 1995. I painted more than 400 sunsets, plus sunrises and moonrises, between 1995 and 1997 – nine years before the “painting a day” movement is said to have begun. The first completely consecutive series – painting every sunset – began at the fall equinox, September 22nd, 1997. I painted the sunset every day, “in real time,” at 14x18, and continued through 1998. I resumed the series at the beginning of 2006. For two complete years, 2006–2007, I also painted each sunrise. I continue painting every sunset, as I’ve done since January 1st, 2006.
