Image Description

A horizontal composition is commanded by an irregular oval-like form tipped diagonally from the top left to the bottom right. A large, rounded splotch of bright yellow and a large splotch of bright blue are nestled beside each other into the top right side of the abstract oval with bright red field of color below them. A gestural mark of black separates the red from the yellow and blue and lightly bleeds into these colors. Either end of the ovoid shape has been painted in a dull gray with some red and blue showing through.
