Goal: To create one  piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Roger Ebert, a fixture in the critic’s world, passed away yesterday. I can’t say I was an avid, or even semi-avid, watcher of Siskel and Ebert or At the Movies. I can probably count the number of times I’ve seen the show on both hands and read Ebert’s reviews from time to time. So why am I talking about him? Because yesterday I read an incredible piece he wrote re-printed by Salon.com that discussed his views on death. It nearly had me in tears it was so lovely.

Inspired by his thougthful words, I created this simple, ethereal piece.

  1. I used to listen to Siskel and Ebert on PBS…so sorry to hear about Mr. Ebert’s death! Your painting is so beautifully appropriate!

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
