6 x 8, oil
I apologize for the glare in the photo. It is increasingly more difficult to finish the painting and photograph it before the light changes and it becomes too dark. Or perhaps I'm just getting slower. In any event, I discovered these limited-edition bottles and couldn't resist painting them. The box says the shapes are replicas of those made by Coca Cola in 1899; a time when, as my son so astutely pointed out, the bottlers added a "special ingredient" to the-drink-that-refreshes: cocaine. Where did you think coke got it's name?
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a passing cloud, from a spider's web"...Pablo Picasso (or perhaps from bottles with interesting shapes and colors)
