Purchased with funds from the Myers Foundations.

Color descends and ascends as the art progresses, showing the flashy beginnings of celebration, to the eventual fading and dullness of normality. Toward the center of the piece is a brightly colored streak, which seems to extend outward from the piece. However, this is soon consumed by the dark blue abyss below. Acting as if it were a firework, bright and colorful to only fade to darkness soon after. The piece displays two opposites interacting to form one. Portraying both the highs and lows of celebration which eventually blend to form the middle ground of everyday life.

Abstract work, containing the colors blue, purple, red, green, yellow and black.
