I painted this in my friend Crockett's studio the summer before last, in San Francisco. We had just traveled to Scrap, a creative recycling and reuse center in China Basin. I found a bunch of square white plastic lids for square white plastic buckets and gessoed them, and then we sat in the studio with sun through the windows and music on an old boombox. Crockett keeps his acrylics scrambled around and we used the brushes we could find buried underneath wood scraps and cassette tapes. The whole day was an adventure.
