ELLIE SPANGLER: LUNCHBOX
Each evening after I put my daughter to bed, I pack her bento-style lunch box for school. I enjoy choosing different foods to put in each section, creating a colorful composition. As I completed this series, I realized that these paintings seem to be inspired by this daily task. Each square brought a new opportunity for color and shapes to interplay.
