"Maycember" 2019

30 days away from home. Stayed at 11 different homes. Slept in the van 4 times. Painted 32 paintings (3 of them got away). 3,277.7 miles by car. 4.7 miles on a bike. 27.2 miles on foot. 5 slow mornings drinking extra cups of coffee waiting for the rain to stop. 11 paintings completed under the threat of rain. 4 times I held my ground painting about 5 feet from a passing Amtrak train. 1 time I got a good talking-to for standing so close to the tracks. 6 views painted from private property (all with permission). 7 paintings completed from the roof of my van. 1 late night collaborative painting of a friend’s cat (not shown).
