Square Canvas

Shoreline Blues, 30x30, acrylic

Lately I have really been enjoying painting on a square canvas. It seems like an odd format for a landscape painter, but I find it very appealing. I also like the finished look of a square painting when it is framed. Maybe it is the challenge of breaking up the symmetry of the four equal sides. This is a very simple composition, similar to others I have done. I stylized the shapes in the sky and sand to add interest and played with a variety of blues and greys.


  1. So beautiful! Love the simplicity. This is great! Big fan of your work!

  2. Square is unusual for portraits and figuratives, too. But I agree that it seems to make the process more interesting and often the product!
    Like your quite distinctive style.

  3. I love the way you handled the sky, I like square format too)
