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.
