The painting does not require a frame; it is oil on masonite in charcoal/sepia tones, and was created in an 'old world' grisaille style.
This monochromatic abstract harkens back to my collegiate studies, and as a graduate student teaching zoology with the hours spent staring into a microscope mystified by the primordial world just out of site, a bacterial/protozoan cloud chamber. MB
