    Do you know the meaning of this piece, the name? I tried looking it up but didn’t yield any results explaining it. It seems to be a family name?

      Sonnenbaum means sun tree in German…or sunny tree; he may have been going for that, or perhaps a deeper, more subdued meaning. I do like the colors on this one, though.

        Ok. Thanks for the clarity. I like the colors as well. I have a vision of it being on a wall with a couch facing it for me to sit in with a glass of wine to drink as I stare at it. I feel I could meditate while looking at his work.

    That is how his work helps me to feel. I think I will save some images from online as wallpaper or screensavers. This is when I would appreciate having a serious cash flow to purchase an original.
