Work Description: 
A bright reddish-orange pigment covers the right half of this tall, narrow composition. A black form rises along the left side of the orange, divided from the brighter pigment by a thin cobalt blue figure spanning from the top edge down just below center. Directly to the left of this blue strip is a lighter blue lifeline which runs through the black pigment. To the left of the black form, a deep purple form runs along the left from the top down to the bottom. A canary yellow form hugs the left lower edge, running from the bottom left corner up to just below center. Two small lighter orange forms interject the large darker orange form at the top center and bottom right corner.
