The Green Flash

1996

The Green Flash (Le Rayon Vert) is an atmospheric phenomenon that can be seen for only a few seconds as the sun dips below the horizon. The red color of the sun becomes a radiant green on its upper edge. This green flash is a product of the refraction of long and short waves of light. 

The artist saw the green flash in the Caribbean in 1996 and it became a motif in her paintings.
