"Champagne cork reflections"

Oil on museum quality, archival 1/8" ampersand gessobord panel - 5" x 5"


I don't know why I love playing with this red tablecloth so much.  Perhaps I was a bull fighter in a past life.  It is fun to paint and it really gives some gravitas to such a tiny panel.  Corks from two of my favorite champagnes; Schramsberg and Mumm, reflecting off of a chrome wine bucket on a red tablecloth.  So simple yet so satisfying.  

Something a bit more complex tomorrow, I promise.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! It is nice to know people are looking.

Farm girl - You'll be happy to know I have a new painting of Amphictyonis (AKA Demeter - Goddess of wine) that I am working on. It might be up tomorrow.
