Neighbourhood, Yellow Door 2, 11" x 14", oil on canvas
This is a larger version of a mini yellow door. Interesting to do in different size, its not simply a matter of enlarging but encountering and solving a whole bunch of other "problems"... I have been pondering the size thing a lot for this body of work, and am finding it seems to work well with the subject matter to work smaller than i have in the past. Maybe something to do with the more close-up compositions. I like really zeroing in on a "tight" composition, somehow creates an interesting tension. Well off to the boat for new years! shall be a crispy, chilly one, time to dig out the long underwear, i think i dislike being cold more than anything i can think of. Happy New Years to all! And Happy Painting to my fellow painters.
