The artist shares that the name of the painting is derived from her love of jazz music and its freewheeling improvisation, yet, organized structure. Delgreta says that this work is named for her preoccupation with uneven shapes similar to a puzzle, developing interesting patterns and how sunlight illuminates stained glass.
