Piece description from the artist
Vertical bands bracket a glowing, entrancing center reminiscent of a movie screen, the theater stage, or a window. The artist's pictures offer the viewer an emotional lift, as music, drama, and nature do for many people. The artworks are icons of renewal made of color. The original painting does not require framing as the artist intends the viewer to see the complete image without the overlap of a frame. The panel is cradled in the back for easy hanging.
