Verbal Description: This square composition is a color photograph, but it’s difficult to understand what its subject is; it looks like the photo was taken from an airplane window. The top third of the composition is sky blue. Lining the parameter of this blue trapezoid is a white cursive script reading the title of the artwork. The horizon line is at a slight angle, sloping down to the right. The bottom of the composition is a textured white landscape, likely clouds, punctuated by dark lines throughout.
