Spokane Reflections

I painted reflections on Spokane's Sacred Heart Hospital twice on un-stretched canvas. Then I cut out pane-sized rectangles and collaged them onto stretched canvas painted the color of window mullions. I alternated panes from the original two paintings to mimic the reflection's discontinuity. I had enough panes left for another painting, so I reversed the right-to-left. I thought this might un-do the reflection's reversal, but I found that I would have needed to cut much narrower strips.
