Painting for Ryan

I was talking to my friend Ryan the other night, and he was saying he likes this painting. I did this in 2006, it is acrylic on canvas. It is constructed mathematically by using the Fibonacci sequence, and the shapes and spirals that can be created with it. The center of the sunflower is 34 spirals. I took a picture of just the spirals before finishing the painting.
