Note: From the artist: "The title is derived from its large vertical shape. The composition removes the sky completely and expands the view of the valley vertically to include more foreground hills. The omission of a horizon blurs the context of a traditional landscape while the added foreground creates new areas of light and shadow. While staying true to nature, the overall effect is a bit abstract, as the color and patterns have in effect become the skeletal structure of the painting." INQUIRE MORE
