Wine Time

8 x 10 Oil on Canvas

Well this isn't shoes or doggies or even an interior scene.  What it is suppose to be is a painting of my favorite cocktail.  My friend and fellow art blogger, Kelley MacDonald, invited her fellow art bloggers to a Cocktail Party Challenge.  Her challenge was to paint our favorite cocktail. My first reaction was I don't drink much so there isn't much in the way of cocktail fixing in my house. Then I got an email from my friend Kelley, she was just saying hello and I thought again, well no real fixing at my house, but I do have wine. Boy, before, during, and after painting this glass of wine I could have used a cocktail, it was quite the challenge.  I don't think wine is considered a cocktail so I'm hoping my friend won't throw me out of her challenge-will you Miss Kelley?

  4. It is absolutely gorgeous! Love the detail in the tray and your composition, point of view. Beautiful my dear. Inspiring me to go finish a painting I started Sunday. Between freelance and hanging out at Oma's, I haven't had much time to paint.
