An Abstraction From the 1970's

This is an early work of mine. It harmonizes geometric rhythms with
organic shapes. Bach's musical work, 'Die Kunst der Fugue,' has long
been one of my favorite classical pieces. I used to paint listening to
Bach, Hayden and Mozart frequently in the 1970's.

I also began listening to international ethnic music. Aboriginal
Australian djeridu, Zen sakahuchi, and Central Asian melodies all
contributed to my mood.
