This monochrome painting displays the smooth, immaculate finish Francis achieves by coating the canvas with a plastic-based medium. In Veil he blurs the black dots by brushing them vertically then horizontally to produce an out of focus image. This for Francis "alludes to a fragile existence and suggests how little we know about ourselves and our place in the cosmos".
