This is an abstract drawing done with green and orange-brown crayon. The drawing in composed of green parallel lines with orange dashes placed at random intervals between them. The lines begin to the left of the paper’s center line and run to the right of the center before curving under and looping back up to terminate at the bottom horizontal line. The vertical lines restart at the uppermost horizontal line and continue along a vertical course before ending suddenly.
