Most of the sheet of paper is taken up by an abstract geometric drawing that resembles a house. There is a rectangle outlined in black that shares a side with the triangle above it that’s other two sides are fluorescent orange. The interior of the triangle is colored in blue, while the top quarter of the interior of the rectangle is colored in purple and the rest of the rectangle in magenta. All of the colors used have splattered across the paper to some extent.
