Artist's description:

When I was a young artist, I lived in New York and visited the Impressionist collection at the Metropolitan Museum many, many times. I remember being transfixed by a small Monet whose dabs of color came out and surrounded me like dust motes in the colored light streaming in the stain glass windows of a cathedral. I felt a huge push to step into the painting when a newspaper headline flashed before me "Woman apprehended trying to step into painting". It was a droll but also a beautiful experience and this little piece with its yellow path into the world of color might do the same for you.

This is painted on a metal frame with glass, with the painting continued on the sides. It is ready to hang. I created it with many, many layers of color and it is a pleasure to view and feel in person.

I do not license the images of my paintings for reproduction in any medium, so the original you purchase from me remains the one and only.
