This abstract composition consists of small rectangles in tan, olive green, and dark brown, all vertically oriented and randomly spaced apart. Thin lines of the same colors also criss cross over the paper. The rectangles and lines are layered over an all grey background that stops before the edge of the composition, revealing the tan paper. A grid disappears under the paint but is visible on the edges of the paper.
