This view of a Japanese pachinko pinball machine is high and
close, where a player might approach it. The original painting is 48 by 60 inches in acrylic, and involves extensive
use of the airbrush to capture the subtle reflections from chrome, glass and plastic surfaces. Noisy, smoky and crowded,
pachinko parlors are everywhere in Tokyo. A pachinko machine I once owned was used as a model for the painting and is
faithfully reproduced, except that the machine colors were yellow and orange.
