This painting can be viewed horizontally or vertically. As vertical it has a different feeling of space and atmosphere,depth and distance, as opposed to the orchestra and the audience.
It began as a study of movement ,line and color, using a limited palette of complimentary color. When my friends responded they all liked this horizontal view which looked like a stage or amphitheater. Once it is viewed one way, it's interesting to accept the changed feeling the atmospheric view.
.Abstract work engages the viewer in ways that are different from the realistic scenes; it challenges and connects to our conscience which might frustrate, confuse or question or even irritate .
