Rows of yellow tickets are superimposed over another into a loosely defined grid. On each ticket is a thin red line which boxes in the word "coupon." The contiguous layered tickets form an abstract pattern of randomly placed objects. Some tickets lie face down while others are obscured by watery layers and washes in tones of gray. Spatial depth is intensified by using a background that deepens from a warm buff color at the top to a cool dark gray at the bottom.
