This piece is sublime in its messy, chaotic order of color, line, and texture. You can almost feel and taste the candy-like vibrant color! The texture is tangible and the color and shapes seem to be almost "locked" into a "grid" of some semblance of order. It is a fun and happy painting that adds life to the room. There seems to be always something new to look at in it.
Note: Painting is not framed, but sides are painted black and framing is unnecessary but up to buyer.
