The work is on wood panel and is painted with acrylic and oil enamel with rhinestones set into the surface. The corners of the work are rounded. A border of painted wood-effect, reminiscent of Formica, surrounds the main image. The inner section at the top has a decorative rectangular structure of black and gold rhinestones that is interrupted by a wedge of wood-effect painting. The image at the center of the painting is a woman wearing a gray patterned coat and gray dress, sitting on a bed or sofa covered in brightly colored throws and cushions. She has a gold bangle on her left wrist and holds something in both hands, somewhat out of sight and down to the right behind her dress. The woman's face and hands are painted in gray and she has long, light colored hair that reaches over her shoulders and down her back.
