Squares and Double Squares
The "Double Square;" paintings whose proportions are the equivalent of two squares side by side, were championed by French Barbizon painters in the nineteenth century. Later the format was popularized by van Gogh. The panoramic format of the double square lends itself particularly well to landscape and many of my other reoccurring subjects. Also included here are square paintings, another tricky format to stabilize. All of these oil paintings are either in the 12 x 24 or 12 x 12 inch format.
