Calendar— Eat well, Eat less, Move more
The 2014 Calendar began with a series of twelve oil paintings created with the theme, Twelve Items for A Salad. I always paint the background
pages for each calendar using a specific color scheme and then hand letter the selected quotes.
As I was working on this project I reflected on the slow food movement, sustainability, processed foods, home grown produce, gardening,

Thich Nhat Hanh and Dr. Lilian Cheung.
I hope you will enjoy each page as much as I enjoyed the entire process.
