A friend who was moving to Florida left me a large unfinished canvas she thought I could use. She had started a geometric painting using masking tape as guides for her lines. Unfortunately, even after gessoing it over, the ridges from the masking tape still showed. So I got the idea of doing a kitchen painting with the lines coinciding with the edges of the refrigerator, the stove and the cabinets. It was also a valedictory to our avocado green kitchen that we were about to remodel.
