Ruminations on Red
Red. Color of the heart, awakened passion, emblem of courage~
Red commands our attention and calls us to action. In harmony with orange and red-violet, red forms the center of a fiery bond.
The vitality of color in Rhythms and Red has a kinship to the rippling movement of light as it bathes forms and energizes the shadows. The painting sparkles with colorful interactions as the eye follows the patterning through the picture.
The combination of scintillating color and rhythmic composition animates Rhythms and Red, making it a charming center of attention.
