I’ve finished this oddly sized painting for a group show titled Syzygy (we’re all working on this same long, narrow panel) that will open at Sync Gallery on November 19th and hang until December 11th.
Many thanks to the good people at Sync for inviting me.

So is this little 6″ x 6″ painting- but it is has an end in close sight, and is very nearly there.
