The Long Rectangle: Painting Studies, Diptychs

Red Hose, each panel 10 x 24 inches

Rust Disks, each panel 6 x 20 inches

Now that I was involved with using long rectangles, I thought that it would be very interesting to make diptychs using them; instead of the side by side relationships of the squares, an up and down one would work. I love the way the elements echo one another, or flow one into the other panel at a slightly disjunctive place: a syncopation. Having these variations on the theme enriches each image.
