An inspirational painting for Project Spectrum's month of green.

It's by Terry Frost, Green, Black and White Movement, 1951. It's in the Tate.

Frost used these circle-segment shapes a lot in his work. I don't know what particular significance they had for him, but photographs of him show he had a hugely expressive mouth, often with a wide smile the same shape as he used in his work.
