Secret Garden

One of my absolute favorite paintings, by Michelle Armas.

It's fairly atypical for my taste in art, but something about this piece is just so mesmerizing. I can't explain it.

The work is titled "Secret Garden", and rightfully so. I can get lost in the intricate details and the juxtaposition of the geometric figures next to the organic flowers. Like a metropolitan imposing on the boundaries of nature. A race car competing with a cheetah. The Industrial Revolution taking center stage over agricultural living.

Or even an Engineering student marrying a Liberal Arts student...
