I have been experimenting with irregularly shaped panels since I discovered a table saw. At first I was nervous, since I usually have my wood cut professionally, and I use a handsaw when I make stretchers, but I had a great teacher (my Zia!) and now I'm cutting all sorts of interesting shapes.
With these two panels I wanted to suggest a warped perspective by using shades of the same colour to create depth.
They are both flat paintings, although when viewed directly (like in these photos) they appear to pop off the wall.
