From part of Maya Angelou's poem Phenomenal Woman:

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Wonderful design. Simple geometric shapes, rearranged in a fashion to have a deeper meaning than each individual shape. Kind of like a woman herself, the things that seem simple to some come together to make a bigger, complex picture. I like it. Lots~

I struggled with trying different colors for the blue shapes! It's interesting how others validate your concerns about your own art. Thank you for the thoughts!
