Every day for five years, out-of-work artist Marty Coleman drew lighthearted cartoons and inspirational quotes on napkins for his three daughters' take-to-school lunches. "After many months," he explains, "I felt sort of depressed because, as funny as it sounds, it was my main creative outlet, the only artwork I was doing at the time, and they were all being thrown away every day. 'Oh, well,' I said, and went about doing them." Unknown to him at the time, his middle daughter saved her napkins and gave him the year's worth of them for Father's Day. He has scanned each day's napkin -- 140 in all -- and posted them on the photo-sharing site Flickr. They form a fascinating gallery showing a father's love and his daughter's thoughtfulness.

In "The Adaptation to My Generation: A Daily Photo Project," Jonathan Keller takes a mug shot of himself and posts it on his site. He has done it every day since Oct. 1, 1998, except for an eight-month break when he traveled to Antarctica and elsewhere. If that's not remarkable enough, the site includes links to a video called "Living My Life Faster," in which every mug shot is presented in rapid-fire succession to create an animation of Keller aging over the course of the eight years his project has run so far.

In Postcard From Provence, British artist Julian Merrow-Smith creates an oil painting almost daily from her home in France and posts the image on her site (although she hasn't updated since mid-December). "I try to reflect the changing seasons and light of my adoptive home," she says, so still-lifes and landscapes dominate her work. You can sign up to receive her paintings by e-mail, and many of her creations are for sale as prints or originals.

Minnesotan Liv Lane sees beauty all around her. "I made a commitment on my birthday in October to photograph one thing of beauty every day and write about it," she says. "So far, so good." Her daily photos include happy accidents, such as a blurred nighttime image of car taillights, and things as simple as a child riding a tricycle in the snow or an ice-covered tree. "It's nothing fancy," she says, "but it seems to strike a chord with people." Here's to a beautiful year.
