I had forgotten how many issues there are surrounding a diptych. In actuality, there are two paintings, but they have to function as one painting. I feel strongly that each painting must stand alone, be successful without its companion. I originally started this new series thinking of convenience. How much easier to haul around two paintings that add up to 80" wide as opposed to one huge panel? But it is so much harder to paint. This is oil on canvas, each panel is 40 x 30.
