Geometric Abstract, "Connections," by Amy Whitehouse


Oil, 18" x 24" $700

I titled this painting "Connections,"
because it represents the interconnectedness
of people and their relationships.
Some connections are strong, 
others are new or tentative,
and still others are as yet nonexistent.

The viewer may see something altogether
different - such as molecules or cells.

This active, colorful painting
could be great for a child's room
or an office
to stimulate wonder
or inspire new work.
