A little about the juror.  Jenny Harris has worked at The Museum of Modern Art in the Department of Painting and Sculpture since 2013, and has been a curatorial assistant since 2015. During this time, she has worked with Leah Dickerman on the exhibitions One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North (2015) and Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends (2017), for which she also organized the public program Dance Among Friends, featuring choreography by Rauschenberg’s collaborators, Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor. Most recently, she assisted in the installation of the collection presentation, The Long Run (2017, organized by Paulina Pobocha and Cara Manes) and is currently working on the reinstallation of the collection for the reopening of the Museum in 2019.

21 Day Abstract Painting Project

I am about to embark on a 21 day abstract painting project. I’m already in the habit of painting daily but I am going to see what I can produce on 21, 5 x 5″ panels during this time frame. These little abstract paintings will be posted daily on my Instagram feed and then be available on my new online shop.

Did you know that the common myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit was from a misquoted saying by Maxwell Maltz? He actually said “a minimum of about 21 days” and the saying got changed to “It takes 21 days to form a new habit”.

Just Imagine a World at Peace

Imagine, 20 x 20″, Acrylic on Canvas

My posts are toggling back and forth these days with Figurative and Abstracted work. All I can say to that is that I am on this wild upswing and connecting to my truth as a painter.

The inspiration to create this painting all began with putting my daughters to bed. Part of their bedtime routine is to listen to music with either me singing completely off tune or listening to a selected list of songs. We were listening to “Imagine” written by #JohnLennon and I was telling my girls that this is one of my favorite songs. The following morning my oldest started singing it to me. The beauty of her singing as well as the beauty behind the lyrics burrowed deep into my heart. That morning in the studio I started working on this #painting. “Imagine”, 20 x 20″, Acrylic on Canvas, 2018. Just imagine a world at peace without the barriers of borders, divisions of religion or nationality.
