This is a big canvas for me. I mean, really big. Most of my work falls into the 12" or less category, with my "big" paintings being at 20"x20". I loved working on this. Time and again, as I painted my landscapes on a small scale, I'd think "ah, but what if this were bigger?" There's something about walking into a room and being drawn in by the scale of the art. That's what this painting is for me. Maybe my new "small" will be the 20"x20".
