Recently, I was given the opportunity to paint on an entirely new format size with long, skinny dimensions.

This dining room photo above shows you how two of them look together on a wall. In this mock-up, they're installed horizontally.
Each of these paintings measure 6 feet wide by 9 inches high by 3 inches deep. Notice how the depth means no frame is needed. Their depth makes them stand out almost as wall sculptures.
Most artists find this long, narrow format very difficult. For some strange reason though, I found it to be totally exhilarating. Maybe because the size itself is so obviously abstract, it freed me up at some unconscious level.
I like to think of them as "horizons" or as a panorama of sweeping texture feelings.
Some people like to think of them as "totems" which I don't mind at all. In fact, I always encourage people to hang my work in the direction that pleases them most. Isn't that what art should do - please you?
To be honest, they actually look fantastic hung vertically, either individually or in a group. For example, they'd be perfect for any tall, skinny space such as a stairwell or at the end of a hall.

Where would you hang a long skinny painting?
