This is an abstract geometric painting in various shades of blue and bluish green. This eye-catching piece depicts rays emanating out in all directions. The limited palette gives the painting an overall feeling of cohesion, and the various geometric shapes and variety of darks and lights make for great movement. I prefer the composition vertically, but it definitely works horizontally as well (24" x 34") depending on the room.
