The colors are bold and bright. Due to the artistic process it is difficult to determine what is original to the production of the artwork and what is not. There is undulation to the sheet throughout. There are networks of pinholes in all four corners. There are areas with framer's tape along the edges. Along the lower right edge there is a tear. There are scuffs and creases throughout. Some of the pastel pigment has lifted from the paper and adhered to the plexiglass. The artwork is floated in the frame; framed under plexiglass; wear to the frame; not inspected out of frame.
