Gladys V. Mitchell was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was a member of the Santa Fe Artist Colony. She is best known for her Modernist landscape paintings of pueblos and figurative paintings of Native Americans. She worked in oil, watercolor and woodcut/woodblock. Mitchell experimented with material, color and texture. She painted with a vivid palette and began to introduce sand into her oils.

This still life is printed from etched lucite. Unlike etching on traditional materials like copper, etching on lucite creates a strong textural effect; the image appears almost embossed.

While a resident of Saint Augustine, Florida, Mitchell molded plastics into jewelry, which she sold from her home on Charlotte Street in the historic downtown.
