Work Description: 
A golden yellow field rises from the bottom edge and ends a little more than halfway up the canvas in a jagged, uneven line running from left edge over to the right edge. A heavy black field rests above the yellow field and runs from the top edge down to the jagged line dividing the two fields of color. Several areas of unpainted canvas have been left along this line. A small area along the top center edge has also been left unpainted, and an irregular cobalt blue form dangles from this area down into the black field at top center. Bright yellow vertical streaks shoot like a jolt through the golden yellow field from the bottom edge up to the jagged dividing line.
