An artist uses large size to make things appear near and of greater
importance, and small size to make things appear far away
or less important.
Carol Cloar used Size in his painting "My Father Was as Big
as a Tree" by painting the father large in the foreground
and the tree farther away in the middleground. Because the father
is so large, he appears to be as big as the tree. Other modern
painters have used size to their advantage, including abstract
painters such as Morris Louis, who painted pictures of such huge
size that the frame was unimportant.
