DESCRIPTION

This work is an abstract lithograph print. The predominant color is a dark, pinkish, red with accents of purple and yellow, with occasional touches of black. Many of the lines are swirling and appear at first glance to be haphazard. A black, pointed, figure eight form occupies the center of the composition. There is a small, black, house form in the lower left corner. There is also a three pointed, yellow crown shape in the center.
