6"x4" oil on board. It is the epic, never ending struggle of subject versus ground; positive space versus negative space; yin and yang... also known as Composition 101. It is a relentless battle that an artist relishes. This painting appears harmless, oh yeah, that's what it wants you to think. But in fact, it is part of an asymmetrical quest of an asymmetrical mind seeking balance. It's... It's... a lot of guff over a painting of a two-inch terra cotta pot.
