Black and Red One

17x23 mixed media on paper. This piece has a harder edge, something I usually don't do. But, I have been moved by current world events and I wanted to stretch myself a bit and do something with more social relevance. This is a strong piece that would catch your eye in a minimalist setting. The red and black and are powerful with some dark grey and lavender as well. Of course, this could represent anything - once again the wonder of abstract. It is for our minds to determine it's meaning or subject. Let me know what you think.
