1. the act or an instance of departing
2. a deviation or variation from previous custom; divergence
3. a project, course of action, venture, etc: selling is a new departure for him
4. (Transport / Nautical Terms) Nautical
a. the net distance travelled due east or west by a vessel
b. Also called point of departure the latitude and longitude of the point from

5. a euphemistic word for death
With "departure" as the theme, I'd like to suggest that if you're so inclined, you can depart from the normal dimensions for this piece but stay in the vicinity of 320 square inches (20x16). So 300 to 340 square inches.
Hope you'll decide to play along ~ having other artists participate would certainly be a "departure" from our normal operation. If you do, just send me a comment as a heads up!
