DIMENSIONS: 48x36 inches (4x3 feet) and 1 1/2 inch deep (1.5 inch) ORIGINAL acrylic painting on stretched canvas

NEWEST in OLD DESIGN: It was back in 2006 when I shifted my small works to larger scale paintings, I titled the very first large painting "Garden #301". At that time, I thought each painting was like a garden, not garden with flowers, trees, and rocks, but abstract garden that exists in our minds, where we are free to imagine anything we want.
The Garden series pieces, at the time, were numbered, which I eventually had to stop using because paintings looked very similar to each other and there were too many of them, becoming difficult to manage with a system with numbers, like 301, 306, 308, 318, and so on.
The first large painting, "Garden #301," was adopted to a Florida home in 2008, and I totally forgot about it until someone who recently saw it in Florida mentioned it. I looked at the photo of it and thought it the simplest design of all I had made and yet I actually did not make too many paintings in this black and white with rectangular simple design in this size of 3x4 feet. So I have made another Garden #301.
This is my newest painting in the oldest design - produced in 2012.
