If you’re familiar with my work, you’ve seen a lot of my “Wine Bottle Still Life” paintings.  This one falls into that series, but I wanted to highlight it here because of it’s simplicity.  Most of my paintings from that series have dark bronze and gold tones..mixed with green or gold wine bottles.  In this piece, I stayed lighter!  It has soft green tones in the paint and gold mica mixed in!  It’s hard for me to get that coke-bottle-green color with paint!  But, I pulled it off in the piece and it’s one of my faves.  There’s even a vintage bottle that I’ve been saving for years, for just the right piece!

The piece below, in comparison, is one of the first pieces I have done using wine bottles.  It’s still available for purchase and measures 48”x48”

Thank you for inspiring me!!

Cheers
