Dog looks straight up emphasizing its neck and jowls. Above is an orb which reflects back its face. Strong light illuminates the dog from above, hitting the ears snout and back, and the outline of the orb against a black background.

A white American Pit Bull, clutching a deflated ball, steps from a black background into a blue and green body of water. The water rings out from the step and reveals reflections of the dog and two more which are not there, or are they the same dog in time? The water is painted abstractly with brush strokes, puddles, pours drips and knife marks evident, while the dog is painted in a realistic manner.
