1967. Synthetic polymer paint and oil on canvas, 68 1/4 x 68 3/8" (173.2 x 173.5 cm). The Sidney and Harriet Janis Collection|G%3AHI%3AE%3A1&page_number=698&template_id=1&sort_order=2

The painting is put on canvas, which would make the surface smooth.  The bolt going through the middle of the painting diagonally implies direction and movement. There are many geometric and organic shapes. The colors are analogous, primary, tertiary, as well as triadic. We see a different value and intensity of the primary colors, as well as different hues of the same color. There is implied light where the white color is. We can also see a pattern of circles on the bottom of the painting. There is another pattern with the wave-like shape of the lines above the circles, and the white area on top of the painting that resembles a feathered wing.
