"On Going" is an original acrylic painting on canvas by Alayna Rose, signed by the artist in the lower left. Influenced by Abstract Expressionists like Helen Frankenthaler, Rose's works feature an abstract and gestural use of color that seems to follow the movement of the artist in media res. There is a great chromatic depth to Rose's works; while the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows dominate much of the canvas, beneath one can see pinks, greens, and even some dark grays adding a richness to Rose's already brilliant palette. The title of the composition is also something of a pun: the composition could be 'on going' in the sense that the artist could still be adding new elements to the composition, or 'on going' could also be interpreted as commenting on the phenomenon of leaving.
