A saucer without well or central circle. The painting began with single and double rings painted in blue, with the designs outlined in black and loosely filled-in with purple, turquoise, blue and yellow. The sketchy border design exhibits “paired leaves” in purple, serrated turquoise leaves, and yellow figures with a bird-like appearance. In the middle of the central area is a floral sprig with an eclectic selection of elements. - leaves and flowers of several types and colors.
