Made leading up to a forced move, I took special precautions to keep this piece safe. I left plastic protective wrap partially intact over its surface to preserve the border. The uneven shape of the colored marks shows the edge of the covered area. Each color records subjects found in a book. This is the first drawing with text that does not record what was happening around me. The space between the inner circle and the outer ring highlights these steps of protection, for the drawing and myself.
