Oil on canvas, 18 1/4 x 24 inches

Two black stripes run along the top edge of the work and angle slightly toward the upper right corner. The lower stripe intersects two wavy, vertical stripes along the right edge of the painting. A large rounded form emerges from the lower left corner and fills much of the rectangle formed by these thick stripes. The rounded form is lighter in color near the center of the painting; however, the color darkens closer to the shape's edges. The dark-colored forms in this image have been placed in front of a lighter-colored, grayish background.
