Arrives in a 20" X 46" brushed silver frame. Distortions in the windows cause the reflections to look more like a Picasso painting where the buildings are melting instead of a picture perfect image of the surrounds. To me the distortions are the charm I wanted to emphasize. Having the straight vertical window muntin bars that hold the panes in place seems to emphasize the fluid, melting reflections. If you squint at the painting, which helps emphasize value rather than color, I used the darker areas as pathways to connect one part of the buildings to another. Quiet blue sky reflections provide occasional relief to the jumble of melting buildings.
