House paint on wood
This piece is a compositional experiment that was inspired by a painting I saw on a wall in the background of a TV show. The piece I saw on TV made me want to see how it might feel to create an abstracted shoreline with unusually expansive space above and below with non-terrestrial colors. It's fascinating to me how such a simple, unrealistic, abstracted composition can cause our minds to instantly perceive a landscape. Oh, and the title, Effiler (pronounced eff-ee-lay), is a French verb that means "to taper."
