Believe it or not, the starting point of composing this still life was the desire to paint the backdrop, a towel blanket just like the ones my grandparents brought over from China when they came to visit. It was so ubiquitous to my childhood, that is shocked me to realize many people don't know what it is. From there, I composed the still life of associated items (in my brain at least): hair and dolls. As is typical of my still lifes, they are thematic in nature, rather than representing actual scenes.
