Work Description: 
Bright, primary yellow fills the right half of this vertically-oriented work. A smaller, fire-engine red form floats in the center of the left half of the composition, while an orange form encroaches upon the scene from below at the bottom left edge. A small blue form can be seen along the left edge near the top, and a small jet black dagger-like form enters the scene from the top edge near the left corner. Filling the remaining space is a shiny, deep blue-black, though several small areas surrounding the colorful forms have been left unpainted to provide contrast and separation from the background.
