What a great use of color, organic and inorganic shapes, edges, and composition. One has to appreciate artists who work in an abstract manner as they improve so much with age. Snow’s work reminds me of the wonderful Shirley Jaffe, who is still creating wonderful abstract paintings vast in size though she is in her 90s.
