D DeLong paintings
artist at work
Each geometric shaped painting begins with an original plan created by DeLong using either graph paper or cut out in wood in a smaller size before scaling up. Angles are cut from pine and joined. It can take 2 or 3 months to create each shape before painting begins.
The carpentry involved is as time consuming as the painting process but unlike painting, when a mistake is made with wood it can't be painted out or covered up.
