BUBBLEHEAD 19, acrylic on panel, (5" x 5"), 2015
So it's official. I finally painted all my 5" x 5" square panels. BUBBLEHEAD 19 is my last painting on that size.
A square canvas is a rather peculiar space to work on. Not everything can be squeezed into such a dimension. Portraits work well. And the faces need to be large. Small people on square surfaces look lost. That's what I've concluded after all this time working on these square panels.
Good-bye 5" x 5" and hello to bigger, larger portraits.
