Revealed Landscapes

One of my projects this winter includes a new, 20-page sketchbook that includes paintings of nine places that are part of the National Park Service.  Like many painters, I often notice smaller paintings within a larger work.  Sometimes I even trim a painting on paper to “save” the part that works and discard the bits I am not pleased with.  With this sketchbook, each 10”x10” paintings is preceded by a page where a 4”x4” square has been cut out.  The square frames a “smaller” and often abstract painting.  Only when the page is turned, is the larger painting revealed.
