This is actually one of the first of this series I painted, one without any sort of crossng pattern. I feel like the center also hints at landscape. The idea kind of grew out of a comment someone made on earlier work that it looked as if it was inspired by quilts, and I decided to look more closely at quilt patterns. Also, of course, log cabins have been a big part of my professional life in the study of vernacular architecture, so of course I was immediately drawn to that pattern.
