The progress of these paintings is very interesting. Nevertheless, I think the day-by-day log would be much enhanced by more details of the artist's thoughts as he's working on a piece. Also some background on the choice of subject - was it a commission, or intended for an upcoming exhibition? Has anyone visited the studio and commented on the work-in-progress? Did the artist encounter any particular difficulty during the process, were there new discoveries that might lead to ideas for future directions, etc. Where is the work being executed? Are these works of childhood memory, or of recent observation. I'd love to find a little more of the personality of the artist in the studio log. In my view, I think there is a lot of public interest in the life of the artist - not just the work, and I'd encourage artists to narrate a little more of the problems and (hopefully) successes that they encounter in their life as an artist working today. It doesn't have to be high drama - just a snapshot of what goes on in the day of the art-making routine. You'd be surprised by what people will pick up on - even though the artist himself may not personally think that what he has to add as human-interest background to the making of an artwork is of particular interest.
