This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet has been glued down to the backing board.

There are a few minute cracks to a thicker area of impasto within the central orange passage, inherent to the artist's working method. There is evidence of two minor hairline tears, 3 inches and 4½ inches from the central left edge, respectively, visible upon close inspection and under raking light. Framed under Plexiglas.

I grew up with the notion that paintings create light, that picturing light was really important. As my work developed, I wanted to make paintings that created light, not natural light, but an artificial light.
