The untitled work was painted in acrylic on canvas in 1992, two years after Talty and her husband, Herbert Zuhl, moved from Manhattan to Las Cruces.

Talty said the painting doesn't have a theme, but reflects how she felt at the time she painted it. She also noted that the work needed to be a large painting, and was the strongest work that she had completed at that time in her career.

Talty attended the Art Students League of New York, and admires the work of Henri Matisse.

Other works by Talty at the library include "9/11."

The library is open from noon to midnight on Sunday, 7:30 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
