This painting titled this series. It also solidified my ideas about what I was trying to show. My paintings since doing this one are more complex than the Two Windows or Window paintings. They show landscapes framed by the buildings in them. They show patterns colors and shadows that rest just this side of abstract. I try to maintain my fidelity to the subject matter while trying to create something beautiful. I also want to acknowledge that I know there is an entire history of painting that I am aware of and that there was a time when the minimalists where thought to have killed it.
