"Network" - oil on canvas - 20" x 16" - 2017 - $250

This oil on canvas is a pure abstract that reminds me of several things. You can make your own mental relationships, which is the interesting thing about abstracts.  I considered calling this confetti parade , or red ribbons , or google map.  Any name you like could fit for you.  It is bright and festive in any case.  Click here to see other recent oil paintings.
