8 x 8, oil
I find I am drawn to the square format more and more. Guess that makes me pretty boring, huh? But then, I'm probably in fairly good company there....
Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, "hey girl, magenta!" and she's like, "oh, you mean purple!" and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, "no - I want magenta!"...John Mayer - Room for Squares

This swimming series is just wonderful. I feel the movement and the water on my face. Great job.

Hey Faye, It's hip to be square!
I like the square format too. Makes for interesting crops. Beautiful work here, as usual.
