It is work like this painting, in terms of color harmony, spontaneity, composition, brush work that is just another expression of thge artist's genius and originality. Thrilling stuff directly expressed from the mind, heart and soul of one who has spent 8 decades of life producing art. Work which will one day be widely understood as the best the 20th C has to offer! Music of the highest order, and of course all questions will be entertained.
