I love square paintings. And 36″ x 36″ is the perfect size. They are substantial targets! I created them in the summer of 1997 when I was working as a master teacher at the New York State Summer School of the Arts at Cazenovia College.
I prepared the canvases by gluing additional canvas to the surface. I like the way the raw edges create additional texture. I measured out the composition using a yardstick following thumbnail sketches – the finished paintings varied very little from the original concepts!
I used oil bars and oil paint favoring metallics, titanium white, mars black, and lots of color with domino borders. They are framed in maple and are for sale for $800 each.
