The Horizontals

The long, narrow format of landscape intrigues me, whether vertical or horizontal, especially because it's so difficult not to get lost in the middle!  For the composition to work, its core must stretch to both ends, like the trunk of a tree or a steel beam.  It's always a challenge to "pull off."

It probably doesn't matter that originally, I was planning on working in a long, narrow format all summer, but ultimately was limited to a few pieces begun last Christmas at Vermont Studio Center, and some drawings en plein air, pastels on white paper only, no monoprint.

No matter, here's what resulted.
