Grrreat eyes! Is this a railroad track? I love abstracts and this one has it all. :) It makes you feel warm with the coloration. #221425

Beautiful, Robert - and fascinating. I agree with the others - the warm tones, and the contrast of softness and angular shapes are wonderful.

Well done! #221458
