Short In this painting, a light-skinned, dark-haired woman in an ornate deep purple dress stands next to a dark body of water, posed with her hands aloft. Two partially nude people stand and a lounge in the background.
Short An abstract composition is dominated by a pale gray, water-splotched form that drips outward.
Long The composition centers on gray and light blue form which takes up much of the surface of a rectangular, portrait-oriented canvas. The wave-like blue paint is the topmost layer of a succession of mostly earth tone markings. Many layers of the paint run in drip formations at the edges. The direction of the drips is not consistent throughout the composition: rather the canvas appears to have been moved while the painting was in process, giving the painting a dynamic impression.
