Welcome to TWELVTY

a year full of color

This blog is the home of my most colorful project to date: TWELVTY

TWELVTY is a year long exploration of color.

Launching in its 4th incarnation in January 2020, this is a trip around the color wheel, one color each month.

Every month this year I’m making a series of mixed media pieces in just one color, so at the end of the year I can combine them into one big multicolored work. *Watch this space!!

I’m sharing my process throughout this adventure here in this blog. This is the story so far:

Episode 1: Yellow

Episode 2: Yellow-Green

Episode 3: Green

Episode 4: Blue-Green

Episode 5: Blue

Episode 6: Violet-Blue

Episode 7: Violet & Purple

Episode 8: Red-Violet

Episode 9: Red

Episode 10: Orange-Red

Episode 11: Orange

Episode 12: Orange-Yellow

Some Previous Twelvty Projects

In 2017 I spent a year recycling this world atlas into an art journal. Beginning with yellow I added a few pages each month using one color of the color wheel.

In 2018, inspired by the overstuffed pages of the previous year’s art journal, I made these two mixed media art journal/3d color wheel things.
