In 2011, Ed Miliano began a visual diary, making one picture every day of the view outside his studio window. The paintings are oil on 640 gsm Fabriano Artistico paper and each painting is approximately 16 x 23cm. Diary was exhibited unframed on narrow shelves. It was completed on the 29th of February 2012 and first exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin as part of the Futures 12 exhibition in September 2012. Diary was shown again, in a new configuration, at the Oliver Sears Gallery in 2014 as part of a one-man show called The Nature of Time

Above is a selection of the Diary paintings. The title of each painting is simply the date of the day it was painted. The work was shown unframed. Ed built very narrow shelves which were painted to match the wall where the piece was installed. The work was displayed sequentially from the first painting, 03 March 2011 until the last, 29 February 2012. The way it was hung clearly showed a seasonal transition from left to right. 
When the artist was living in Japan he commissioned a box-maker to build a box containing the entire project. The paintings are stored in twelve compartments that can each hold one month.
