A Field in Breukelen

This oil diptych is 11x28.  When I finished the left side, I wasn't quite satisfied, so I added on, and it works much better now.  The flat roof segments at the right balance the vertical building segments on the left.  The physical split is a repetition of the visual splits.  That's the way it worked out.  I didn't really plan it that way in advance.  When I originally saw this field surrounded by a fence and buildings, I thought of the paintings of Richard Diebenkorn, who has always been one of my favorite artists.
