Visual Description : This is a rectangular serigraph done in the colors yellow, red, black, orange and ochre. The image is of a decaying old fence that is falling down from age and weathering. There are 11 posts and five wires that expand from one side of the image to the other and take up 3/4 of the enitre composition. The posts are inserted into a gently sloping hill that appears to be dirt and grass covered. The background is composed of intense red, yellow, and orange creating the feeling of fall season. The fence is the focal point of the piece.
