The painting 2017 No.9 has been stretched on a wooden frame and its edges retouched. This is its final state! It is a grand painting that requires a relatively long viewing distance to comprehend well. On this page it is comfortably seen; its reproduction is small. In person it is very large. This brings me to a question. Should I make a new painting that is marked with small strokes that are variations on its color theme? A painting should be grandly involving at all viewing distances. This is the way Vincent Van Gogh and Georges Seurat involved their viewers at every viewing distance.
The reason 2017 No.9 is framed, and fully finished, is its immediate journey to AVA Gallery for their Summer Show.
