Jonathan Hardesty 在 22 岁的时候对艺术还一窍不通，当时的他决定从 2002 年 9 月 15 日起每天至少画一张并且把所有作品张贴到 http://www.conceptart.org/ 上，他在帖子中写道：
…I am starting from rock bottom and I am going to paint at least one painting and do at least one sketch every day…probably two on the weekends. The order you see them in is the order that I am painting and/or sketching them…every day starting on 9/15/02. I am bearing my soul to everyone. I will post everything I do…whether it is awful or not. Most of the paintings and sketches, in the beginning, are going to look like crap but hopefully over the days/weeks/months/years they will start to get better. I have no formal art training but have signed up for classes this semester. I have a passion to paint and welcome any encouragement or critique that you want to give. Any feedback you want to give me you can leave in the threads I or just email me.
然后他坚持了8年。下面是他 2002 年 9 月 21 号贴出的作品：
