The title refers to Jules Langsner, Los Angeles art critic and close friend of Wayne. The surface of the painting, with its sand and stone additives, pressed onto the canvas, provide a surface which is constantly changing depending upon the light and angle of view. This surface shares similarities with the much larger scale Djuna, created in the same year.
