1 week over. 7 drawings completed. 7 items that I have found lying in the street. things that were thrown away, discarded, the remnants of living, lost and left there. every day I walk, I draw... and every day I affirm that I am still alive. I am trying to move away from this narrow space. but for now, I will just notice that I am still here.
(for introduction to this project go to omer drawings day 1 & 2)

every year I try to count the omer (the 50 days between pesach and shavuot). every year at some point during that time I fail, I forget, I stumble. I lack basic discipline. This year I will (try to) count the omer doing a drawing a day. but not just any drawing. the omer goes from the time of pesach, freedom from the narrow spaces to shavuot, a time of listening and receiving. my aim is to walk every day, find something in the street that seems part of the detritus, the discarded stuff of living. the remnants to bring it back to my studio and draw it. and with apologies to the artist On Kawara, to title each one 'I am still alive.'
