Studies for housing series

I'm currently working on some studies for the housing series,  I'm still not quite sure how I want these to look but I'm starting to visualize quite large pieces.  I like the mark making in this most recent piece and I feel that this could be explored and developed further on a larger scale.  

After alot of deliberation about whether to put text on these I've decided against it, using text was always my 'formula', and a really simple way to be direct about the points I was making in my work.  However I think a poignant title can be just as powerful, in a subtle and perhaps more effective way.

I love Charming Baker's paintings, and his titles are really effective in adding further dimension to each piece.  When I look at a painting by him and then read the title, I start to visualize something else and reflect on alot more than just the image I am looking at.
