Square is still “liberating”

My fascination with a square canvas continues. For me, square is still liberating.



This was my experiment putting red on the inside and white on the outside (a reaction to my previous Beyond Insight). Then I decided that red and white was too limiting.

And, of course, red is not my favorite color. Blue is. So I decided to continue the “Square is liberating” experiment with blue.

Above Blue


Above Blue is all about using various blues and white to express sky or water, soaring above or looking up to the light. There’s a wonderful feeling of freedom, which is what the square format seems to give me.

So I decided to try again, still with blue.

Sounds of Blue


Still blue, still abstract, but no white. But I like the feeling of movement. Not sky or water this time. Just blue. A little bit of depth and the focus on the upper right.

Yup. Square is still liberating.
