Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of artist Donald Baechler.

Baechler comments: "I don't see [the work] as happy or upbeat... I think of [the objects in the paintings] as very isolated... the isolated ice cream cone, for me it's a kind of melancholy thing, it's not really a happy thing. In some sense it's a surrogate for a self portrait ... and I think the flowers are as well, it's the lone individual in the universe."
