The focus of this drawing is two flower pistils, the round central parts to which petals are attached. They are shown as if viewed from the top and aligned vertically on the page. Each pistil has a small, round central area surrounded by a ring of yellow ridges, then another ring of green ridges. A tan vertical stem-like line runs between the two pistils. Green horizontal lines extend from the center of each circle. Sketchy, un-detailed black and white lines suggest petal shapes around each flower center. There is a slanted paragraph of text in the bottom left corner.
