Joan Mitchell worked from memory. She painted neither reality nor memories, but rather her perception of things and space. 

Her recurrent use of panel painting enabled her to control the composition of her paintings in which strident, overlapping colors create tension, while contributing to overall harmony. No Room at the End (1977) is composed of two entirely painted panels; the greens and yellows on the left contrast with the blues on the right.
