A few days ago the painter David Manley commented that a table I was building as a display case for my Long Series reminded him of the tables that used to be found in record stores. Then he drew my attention that the 12×12 inch size of my paintings related to the dimensions of record albums.
I was aware of the record album connection before as I have used a record in one of the paintings.
As one of my rules for the Long Series is that I should try as many things as I can I decided to fool around with the idea a bit and see where it went.
The end result is a painting with four sides. Two of which are enclosed within the album cover.
