Numbers in Color

This is a painting by Jasper Johns, he was born in Augusta, Georgia on May 15, 1930. The motif of the numbers and letters have made his painting famous.

I like this painting because the colors stand out, he uses for the most part complementary colors: green and orange. I like the painting because the style of painting numbers is interesting I would never have thought of that. I  like how the overall view of the painting does not look like number, it just look like an harmony of multiple colors.
