Template II is a simple piece with a white object being the focus. The white color contrasts with the grey background to give a very modern feeling. The object could be a feeling to focus on, the contrasting white with grey may give the viewer a feeling of hope against the dark clouds that can sometimes be experienced in life. When looking at this piece, it can be imagined that the object is a hug or embrace of safety.
Abstract, detailed white and gray form.

Featured in the 17th North Dakota Print & Drawing Annual in 1974.
