So at the beginning of January for the start of 2021 i thought it would be a good idea to go back to doing Project 365 in my photography again as the format is very good for keeping me producing and learning.

Remodernism is an alternative to the established High Art hegemony, known as Post-Modernism, and its institutionalized cynicism and ironic detachment. As an Art Movement, Remodernism is somewhat unusual, insofar as Remodernism is defined by the Remodernist painters’ intentions, rather than by any formal qualities of the Remodernist artwork. In other words, Remodernism is a way of thinking about art, and the purpose of art, rather than a specific way of making it. Briefly, Remodernist painters do not think that Modern Art is rubbish, Remodernist painters do not believe that communication via art is impossible, and Remodernist painters do believe that one of the legitimate goals of a Remodernist painters' art can be the sincere expression of an authentic personal spirituality. Spirituality in Remodernist art does not equal religion. Religion is about beliefs and following rules. Spirituality is about the search for truth and Love.
I paint therefore i am...
It is what I do and what makes me happy. Iconic 'Paintings within Paintings'.
Some images of my work with the hidden paintings within paintings can be seen here
I do not work from images around me but from ideas and feelings using allegorical icons and motifs to present my work to a wider audience...mindscapes of my life.
I love to read and discuss and share my ideas and ultimately that is the satisfaction I get from my work ... it is a delight when my work touches someone elses life and makes them smile or nod with understanding... to me that is the most cherished of compliments....
I am happy and most of my work reflects that but also I have a social consciousness that despairs at the things we are doing to our planet and if i can serve to 'prick the consciousness' of the viewer then i will do so and without reservation...
i do not believe is sitting on the fence as a passive observer and wish to record in some way something about our contemporary society and the issues and dilemmas we face...

THE OPTIMIST CREED
To be so strong that nothing can
Disturb your peace of mind -
To talk health, happiness and
Prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that
There is something in them -
To look at the sunny side of everything
And make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best and to expect
Only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the
Success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
And press on to the
Greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance
At all times
And give every living Creature you meet
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
You have no time to criticise others
To be too large for worry
Too noble for anger
Too strong for fear
And too happy to permit
The presence of trouble
Indeed Wendy. And your art always reaches the parts of me that other beers cannot reach. And thank you for today, very cathartic - Amore Vincit Omina

Thank you for sharing your vision with us by posting your pictures here. Just lovely.
I like the look Wendy. Pretty simple to navigate and streamlined - not confusing - I just wish it wasn't just thumbnail images on the main pages.
