"A painter is a choreographer of space," Barnett Newman
Landscape painting is born at the horizon. It guides the painting, no matter sea, meadow, farmland or river. The is no formula for this. I placed the canvas on the wall at the level it should be viewed and placed a string across it horizontally. How did the division of space feel? I intuitively adjusted the height of the string, stood back and pondered until I felt …solid.
