Most artists consider it a creative challenge to paint a long and narrow canvas. It's especially difficult to keep the eye moving side to side and back and forth. Of course I always gravitate toward a challenge. And to be honest, I love painting these.

Clients and designers especially like this format because it can be hung either horizontal or vertical for those odd spaces that need drama.
