Bottle Neck


Small painting of a bottle with white cloth. I just felt like painting a small one tonight, and it doesn't get much smaller! I haven't painted this particular bottle in quite awhile. I really like how it catches light. It has a really nice, rich color as well.

Something a little different for me. This a skeleton I have for my advanced students to draw and paint. I have had it for about a year, but this is the first time I have painted it...even though I have wanted to for awhile. So, when I got home from school today...I did!

Green Bottle with Cloth No.9


Newly finished piece of one of my personal favorite things to paint: my green bottle. I particularly enjoy painting the combination of the reflective glass bottle with the soft, flowing cloth.

Small green bottle and rubber cement bottle together. I have painted these two bottles several times individually, but never together. My last painting of the green bottle had the orange lid from the rubber cement bottle too. I noticed the little rubber cement bottle sitting on the shelf without it's just struck me funny, so I decided to paint this piece and title it with the most fitting word I could think of.

The little green bottle painted from a slight worms eye view, which makes it seem almost important. I diluted a bit of concentrated water color(stirred with one of my spoons) and filled the bottle half way. Why is the spoon upside down?...It doesn't fit the other way!
