Work Description: 
This canvas is primarily covered with a bright yellow pigment. Areas of brown and white mingle with the yellow, creating a dynamic, vibrating scene. A single blue lifeline rises from the bottom right edge of the composition vertically until it runs off the top edge, just right of center. Two tiny eye motifs are painted, one on top of the other just below the top edge along the lifeline. A small circular red form is located just to the left and below these dots, and a second circle painted in white floats in the bottom right corner.
