a mile wide

Horizons give my eyes space to wander. Here, I play with multiple distances as resting points for your gaze.

The base collage for this piece is a minimal landscape: a simple horizontal slash of masking tape over graphic dots, with pale texture to occupy the negative space. The layers add to that landscape feel, without, I hope, overdoing it. There are textural composites of golden marble and gray-green, with lichen, bark, fence, trees, and several coastline views as destinations for the eye.
