Positively West Fourth Street

Last April I began a commission. 
This is oil on canvas, 60 inches square.
Here are three photos of the progress, and an installation shot. 

Sometime in early May, after a few weeks. 
I'm always working on more than one at a time.

Late May. 
I had experimented with a grid, 
then the form began to materialize.

Sometime in August, I think. That was my summer beard.

November, 2011, installed in the client's boardroom. 
The title, "Positively West Fourth Street," 
was suggested by Diane, because Bob Dylan is often on my turntable 
and my studio windows look out on West 4th Street.
