Artist Mary Ellen Cronteau was working on an artwork involving plastic bottle caps, creating tall endless columns that are strung vertically into colorful columns. She repeatedly noticed how some of the caps  would fit neatly inside of one another creating new color combinations  similar to the portraits of Chuck Close.  Inspired, she became sidetracked and embarked on her own self portrait  using the colors that “naturally” appeared in the bottle cap plastic.
