Colors develop like waves crashing in upon each other and creating depth. This piece is truly alive and energetic and is vibrant and interesting to look at from any angle. It is a PMS original oil painting like no other.
Note: This painting is painted on canvas and does not come framed. However, the sides of the piece are painted black and with the texture on the edges of the piece, framing is not recommended but up to the preference of the collector.
This painting is signed on the front and includes my Certificate of Authenticity.
