Soft washes of butter yellow and sky blue compose the background of this painting. Strokes of burgundy, purple, green and teal add a sense of depth and balance to the work.

Milly Ristvedt is an extraordinary Canadian painter of abstraction. Single brush strokes float and hover in the pictorial space as washes of color merge and blend in quiet harmonies. Her paintings speak quietly but with great purpose.
