Wall Painting

After hanging the monochrome paintings together on walls in a traditional manner I chose to make independent paintings each related to the wall alone. One painting in casein covered a 35 x 10 foot wall, another on canvas was longer than the wall as it was divided in three parts, still others fit the space floor to ceiling. In addition each presented a different medium or technique: casein, oil, encaustic, glaze, egg tempera.
