I had initially planned to do ten paintings of shoes (to represent the beginning of World War One) to make it a nice round number, but deleted one (and re-used the canvas to paint "Why Are We Here?") because I then thought hanging nine in a square would look nice (coincidentally, the one I chose to delete is the one in the middle covered up by #7). Then I realized the display panels I'd borrowed wouldn't fit a square of nine 20" x 20" paintings, so I ended up displaying them horizontally:

 Below are the initial ten paintings prepped and ready to go. You can see Number 1 here, and 6 through 9 here.
