You could say that this is a "still life" in the old artistic tradition. Random things appear and are painted. Most still lifes are not random. The artist arranges them. This is mostly random and somewhat arranged. It's a table top at Starbucks with the remains of coffee and a cookie. The cookie wrapper is rectangular, the coffee lid is round. A wooden twig coffee stirrer lies across the lid. I drew this while a Montessori school teacher looked on and she provided the title for the sketch. Then she showed me from her workbook how things are done in a Montessori school. It made me want to be a child again so I could learn my geometry and languages that way.
