"Topped" - SOLD

I admit this is a reoccurring composition. On this one, however, I lifted the focal point high on the board, and unintentionally cut the board almost in half with light and then dark. Half is usually a place to avoid when painting, but I think I am okay with how this turned out.

Hi Aaron,

You are so right that we rarely break the one third/two thirds, ideal rectangle, golden mean law. I think your departure works here because the dark blue creates the feeling of a new "frame".
Then the composition above the blue,
follows the rules.

Whatever the reason, it's tremendous, and you're a great painter.
