Work Description: 
A deep umber brown pigment fills the left side of this composition from top to bottom edge. An irregularly-shaped velvet black form emerges from the brown form just above center and runs horizontally over where it expands vertically across top center. Two small parallel blue forms hover in the top right quadrant. Bright yellow pigment is painted down the right edge from top to just below center. Vertical strokes of white paint fill the background, are more concentrated in the right half of the work, and become more scarce as it nears the left brown form.
