Work Description: 
A bright red form fills most of this composition and sits top a darker red form that runs along the bottom edge. A tiny black flicker enters at bottom center. The top right corner is filled with white paint, and a yellow form floats along the top left edge. The yellow form is separated from the red area by a thick white area. A thin blue life-line runs through this white form, and an even smaller orange line runs along the right edge of this white form directly to the left of the bright red. The surface of this painting has been compromised by wax paper that has adhered to the surface in some places causing varied reflectance and altered surface texture. Two long strips of wax paper are pictured here still adhered along the right edge.
