Inscriptions/Signature

A woman lies on her back. Her proper right hand rests on her neck, while her head rests on her proper left hand. Her legs are elevated, bent at the knee. Purple strokes of color represent her feet, which extend outward from her body. Her skirt bunches at her waist, exposing her thighs and stockings. She looks out at the viewer. She wears a blue shirt. Her skirt is pink with lines of maroon and purple. Her stockings are black with a pink garter. Orange highlights appear on the side of her proper right leg. The background is tan in color with grey and brown highlights.
