Description: Abstract Painting: Red

At first glance, this painting seems to be nothing more than a monochromatic (single color) rectangle.  Take the time to look closely, with soft eyes and from different angles: this red painting invites the attentive viewer into a quiet contemplative space from which subtleties emerge.
