This abstract composition begins on the center line of the paper and moves to the right. To the furthest left is a short purple-blue vertical stroke that bows towards the right. On the right side of the composition are two long, broad navy blue vertical strokes. Between the purple-blue and navy blue strokes is a short yellow-green stroke that overlaps with the purple-blue stroke. From the top of this yellow-green stroke, a horizontal yellow-green stroke runs across the tops of the two navy blue strokes.
