My WHOLE life I thought a 9" x 12", in art schmart terms, represented a portrait oriented space. Not true. How could I have missed this? I have painted a lot of squares so I've gotten away with this ignorance in many cases, but for real? And why didn't anyone tell me along the way that I had listed the work incorrectly? Now I'm terribly confused every time I try to figure, "What size is my work?" I completely learned this the wrong way. Worse, I don't think many gallery folks have corrected my placards.
