Vertical Experiments

I've been taking it a bit easy the last few weeks after months of an intense teaching schedule.   Time to recharge the batteries, then get in some real studio time.  I have been exploring a vertical format.  Over the years I've done loads of sketches of vertical pieces, but on paper I never seem to actually do them.  So I gave myself (and my Extreme Composition students) a challenge to work in exaggerated proportions.  Here are a few of my efforts.  All of these are 22" high.

This is one piece in three parts. 
It's fun to try a new format! Vertical, extreme horizontal, way bigger than you are comfortable with, way smaller, modular.... give it a try!
