Rashid Sales New Painting -Inspired by Music
Posted: 18 Jul 2007 09:20 PM CDT
"Based on the live performance paintings I recently produced during the Cummer Museums, Rather Strange Developments, show I have begun new works. This is a small piece. I think it expresses the influence Wassily Kandinsky has on my work. A fellow artist and collector, Glendia Cooper, recently purchased it."
