His line of "Whimsical Animals" has been featured in the Community Arts Cafe and GoTriad and is available for sale in galleries, boutiques, and shops around the Triad region and from the mountains to the beaches of North Carolina. Matted ready-to-frame reproductions of the original oil paintings are sold in various sizes and as greeting cards. Plaster's menagerie includes an assortment of animals of many species, but he is also known for his landscapes, "Series of Beetles" and "Collection of Flies."
