Work Description: 
Dark brown and black forms intermingle and fill this composition. A single maroon form hugs the left edge from top to just below center, and a gold form sits in the bottom right corner. Several muddy white small forms are scattered throughout the think impastoed surface. A faded blue lifeline snakes its way through the work from the bottom edge up towards the top right. Cobalt streaks jut in to the scene from the top right corner.
