In 2012, I continued my "Year in Color" series using the same color process begun in 2011. (In the previous year, I have been creating a small painting for each day using a complex color that has been made by mixing a simple set of primary pigments and white. The practice is an attempt to translate and capture the day’s unique experiences, activities, and moods.)

For the large, year-long piece, 5” x 5” wood panels were divided into a color according to the percentage of the moon that was illuminated on that date and a mixture of blacks depicting the percentage of the moon in shadow. However, I also experimented with translating the daily color record of the moon phases in a different scale and made prints of the original palettes on metal plates.
