This new painting is oil on canvas, standing seven and a half feet tall by six feet wide. While painting, I often take the option to do things that I have never done before. This is my first effort at a quartering the canvas horizontally.

It's exhausting to stand and view, I prefer to lay down on the floor and take a long, slow look. There is a lot more happening with this quarterly divided canvas. The repetitive and the random clash more dramatically.

The paintings are installed flat against the wall to appear as two dimensional as possible. Stretched canvases encroach too much on space, also I don't want any confusion that these might be three dimensional.

These photos are taken with my new camera. I think it's working out nicely.
