My Trompe l'oeil painting, "Shelves" pictures books and objects of French Polynesia, where I had traveled to. A palm leaf lei given to me by a Tahitian dancer; a Tapa print, bongo drums and a tam tam percussion instrument from the Marquesas Islands. The lower right hand corner pictures three travel books by one of my favorite American Authors, Herman Melville-"Typee," Omoo" and "Mardi."
