"Crossing Boundaries"

36''x12''x1.5'' Acrylic on Gallery Canvas

I'm in an experimental phase right now and I'm also into these unusual size rectangles. These skinny paintings are gaining popularity and work well in a small space where it's hard to find the right fit. I like the challenge of composition with these as well.

The title mirrors my views with art right now. Some people want to put limits on what you create, but I believe art is in a constant state of flux and should flow from within the artist. When you put a barrier in a stream, water will force it's way over or around one way or another. The flow can be challenged, slowed or checked, but the force behind it never ceases.
