Work Description: 
A large, rich brown expanse spreads over the entire left side of the composition reaching up to the top edge and down to the bottom right corner. A smaller gray passage sits along the right center edge of the canvas and seems to be awaiting the inevitable moment when it is engulfed by the brown form. A small bright red form sits in the top center of the canvas, surrounded by brown pigment. A small blue form sits at the top left edge of the gray form, and a small yellow form floats in the empty space above the gray form at the top right corner. The rest of the space around the two main forms is left as bare, sized canvas.
