This is yet another abstract nonrepresentational piece by Pollock where he used slashes of enamel paint that he slung on the paper. To me it looked as if Pollock was trying to express in his artwork a message, however that message was written in a language only he could denote.

In this piece we see, what seems to be, Christ after he was brought down from the cross. He is sitting at the center of the piece with multiple angels besides him.

Excerpts from the Lord 's Prayer float and flicker against the cobalt blue background. There is a contrast seen between the detailed section of the young girls face that uses elements of tone and shadowing to create depth and a sense of realness. The line work in this piece consists of dotting which symbolises the traditional art style. This dotted line is repeated throughout the work to create depth through colour and layering of different colours on top of others. This then creates a sense of patterning to the work.

Her parents, Steven and Jennifer, have been together since high school.
