70,000 Thank Yous

Intention: Gratitude

The 70,000 Thank You’s Project began in 2012 and, just as life does, has evolved along the way. The intention of this project is gratitude, specifically for every dollar my education is worth.


This project has 5 different sets of inventory, each created in gratitude. After expenses, this body of work/inventory will be equal in worth to the amount of my student loans... $70,000. (Note: this amount does not include the 3% interest rate over the 25 year loan.) I am almost finished with all of the inventory that completes the creating part of this project. I am now challenging myself to complete this project by the end of 2022. The 20 large scale oil paintings of the sky and clouds are the last to be completed, each are 36″ x 60″. Stay tuned for updates about this project!
