Using Plastic Space, I created this still life set up and recorded the process from set up to finished painting. This was illustrated in my book on Plastic Space. The gourd was grown in my garden and the African thumb piano is a part of my collection. I juxtaposed these items with the basket and fruit for a color shift. The vase in the background is one I made in college under the tutelage of Ceramist Shige Yamada of Hawaii. I almost decided to become a potter instead of a painter, but soon realized the overhead of materials was too great for me to look at pottery full time and returned to painting.
