A Day in the Life of Yolanda

Like Sue, Yolanda's favorite color is blue.  I had the pleasure of reading about a day in the life of a woman living in Paris, France.

I can't really express what this project means to me at the moment.  It is so fascinating getting to know someone through a portrait, hand writing and a diary of his/her day.  I am starting to track the statistics behind each participant's day and hope to have some sort of graph when I have a few more pieces complete. 

I most excited right now about the possibility of starting to show some of the work in group exhibitions.  I have another work that has one more layer of color to go and then I will start to submit the work.  I really want this work to get out there because I feel like it has the possibility of speaking to a great deal of people.  It is more vulnerable, personal, intimate and honest than my past work and I think that will pay off in the end.

I would love to know what you think!
