"The Green Flash"

Patricia Johnson's avatar Patricia Johnson

You, the viewer, are now able to experience the "green flash" longer than just one second, preferably in minutes, as your eyes slide over and around the red orange, lime green, and blue painted surfaces. My original viewing occurred while watching the sun dip below the waters of Green Bay toward the Menominee, Michigan shoreline. The white pine provided me with a more fluid format to express the organic nature of this phenomenon. The edges delineate the movement of water, extend the "green flash" memory, and record the setting sun.
