This abstract composition is placed in the center of the page. To the far left of the composition is a purple-blue vertical stroke, with a green stroke to its immediate right. The blue has bled into the green stroke, giving it a blue-green appearance. Below these vertical strokes is a small triangular green stroke. To the far right of the composition is a red-brown vertical stroke. Framed by the blue-green and the red-brown vertical strokes is a sequence of orange-yellow lines that curve to the right and left.
