I won't go into detail or elaborate on these paintings. I simply want to make a brief comment on the simplicity of the horizontal line and the direct association 'we' make to the horizon line of our world; land or water. Regardless of colors, values, or where the line falls on the picture plane it is hard to escape the connection.
Years ago, I read "All you need is a horizontal line to make a landscape". I enjoy this thought so much because it is in understanding the core elements that help me decide how I want to embellish or proceed in my own art.
I am flipping the images because it reiterates this point well.
