Evening Sun, 18" X 20", acrylic on canvas, 2010
I find rectangular stretcher sufficient. The rectangle is a common shape that inhabits contemporary space. Like an old fashioned window it is suitable for containing an image. The innovation in my work lies within the subjective properties of the picture. Combination of realistic and abstract approaches contributes to a diverse viewing experience. The painting simultaneously evokes the impression of a landscape, a portrait and an associative abstraction.
