A Valuable Delusion

When a collector wanted an abstract, I had no idea where to start. Then a friend gifted me a 60" x 60" linen canvas with basswood stretchers. I lead my process through Diebenkorn's notes and wore button down shirts tucked in to get a feel of stability while navigating the unsuchness of doing abstracts. The result worked for the collector who had to rent a van for transport, since no other vehicle was big enough.
