This abstract composition is centered on the lower left half of the paper. A horizontal yellow-green stroke sits on the center line before running to the left to blend with a larger vertical green shape to its lower left. Two small prongs emerge from the right side of the vertical green shape. Three thin curved black lines are painted over the green shapes, running diagonally from the upper left to the lower right of the composition. The bottom stroke has several prongs emerging from the inner right edge of the stroke and pointing towards the top of the paper.
