Orange and Green with Books

8 x 10"

This little bottle goes very well with the Kaffir Lily - they are both green on the bottom and orange on top! There are a number of things in this still life which are significant to me: the little bottle once contained some sake that I bought long ago while still living in Baltimore. I've used it for mixing and storing medium ever since. The books are by Paul Bowles, my former favorite author (still in my top five, I'm sure), and the plant pot was made by a company my friend Sean designs for in Corvallis. They make all kinds of things out of paper pulp.
