This modern abstract oil painting is a 2 canvas work.

Both(as pictured)  so they are  made to hang side by side but you can hang them separately. 

I create 2 Canvas paintings because  seeking the inside and outside of the edges is my creative process.

Why? 
So I use  Color,line and space.

Because I think about beginnings and endings of any moment and that  exact moment of the beginning and the end.

This painting took  4 months to complete and the  process includes "stretching" the canvas over the wood frame.But I never use "Pre-stretched canvas" and  no sketches were done.

I used the  blank canvases  as a starting point with washes  of  dark purple blue color and this dominates both canvases.Because of the washes of color hints of figures appear.

I use a variety of different brushes and oil colors.How many?Over 50 different types and styles of brushes.How many tubes of oil paint? 
Over 100 different tubes!

All of these materials combine to create a moment in time and In the space and figures in motion .As a result, watch them collide.Flag 83 Abstract Oil painting.

This painting is a Diptych(2 Canvas work)
