One of a group of 16 unframed square canvases that each represent the colours of an AFL team. This canvas depicts the colours of the Essendon Football Club. The canvas is predominately black with a thick red diagonal stripe applied freehand spanning from the lower left corner to the upper right corner. The loose, broad brush strokes cover the entire surface of the canvas. The paints used are vibrant synthetic polymer paints that give the canvas a fairly high sheen. The title of the artwork is, "Geelong Nothing! No Wumpurani (young black fellas) play for Cats". The artist's intentions are for the paintings to be used to represent the AFL ladder as each round is completed. Inscriptions handwritten on reverse around wooden stretcher with a felt marker pen read '12/15' 'P N JONES' '6/04' 'ALCASTON GALLERY'. There is also a handwritten felt marker pen arrow on the reverse of the canvas indicating which direction is the top of the canvas. Handwritten pencil inscription on reverse wooden stretcher reads 'AK10746'.
