About this Artwork
This painting is part of a series that explores quieter elements of music combined with thoughts about fluidity and colors found in nature.
The drawn and painted vertical lines strum beneath the broader breathing bands of washed color.
Narrower ink lines are sharper gestural marks that allow the horizontal to form a depth within the piece which contains the firmer verticals.
