About this project
I know you can't be here and experience the magnificent changes that take place...but you can be part of the experience when you see the book and own your own piece of this special history. A 365 day labor of love, 52 Shades of Blue, is the project I have been working on over the past year. This project is a year long light study, the focal point being the Brentwood Water Storage Tower I pass every day on my drive to get my morning coffee. Light studies have been common place in the world of art; Monet painted hay bales and water lilies that came to life by the light he shined upon them. As my year long study comes to an end I have taken over 9000 pictures of this common water tower from every angle, in every type of weather, and at different times of the day. My ultimate goal is 52 works of art from the 9000 images. Your pledges will allow me to produce 52, 11x14 works of art in all mediums including: photography, Tradigital renderings, watercolors, and canvas paintings, in oils and acrylics. All the pieces will be combined in a book I will title...... Wait for it..... Bet you can't guess?..... 52 Shades of Blue! Today, supporting the arts is more important than it has every been in the past. I am asking for Pledges so I can close this year long project with a worthy finale. Those who support me will receive a kickstarter exclusive work, an original piece, that you will only be able to get if you pledge to my cause. I will also include all the names of those who supported me in the final book. I have been posting daily updates on social media and through that have had the chance to talk to so many encouraging people. We live in a time when social media allows for communication with people all over the world and connections to be forged with those who have similar interests. I hope you are as inspired as I have been and join the world wide movement by supporting 52 Shades of Blue. Pledges start an 1.00 for a digital download. Every dollar pledged will be applied to the production of the works of art and book. Please help me to achieve my goal to share this with the world!
Risks and challenges
Creating 52 individual pieces of art and dedicating over 2 years to one project required a level of commitment i've never attempted before. I've worked on projects for long periods of time but not one exclusively. Visiting the Water Tower on a daily basis, for a one year period of time, was something I wasn't sure I would be able to do. I thought there was a chance I would lose interest or physically not be able to do it each and every day. I was so wrong! This has been the most exciting project I've ever worked on. It has almost become an addiction. I would have never been able to understand the magnitude of what could be learned, each and every day, from studying this tower. I would not be a better artist. I would not understand color, the way I do now, and how time of day, time of year, and weather effects the tower. I am so looking forward to the image creating phase of the project. I have so many different ideas and thoughts on how I am going to create the 52 different images. So many thoughts and styles have run through my head regarding the choices for the 52 paintings. It is going to be difficult to chose! This project has truly helping to define myself as an artist.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
