Excellent, my favorit beverage.

Mark, I'm not sophisticated enough to appreciate wine but I believe that I know great art when I see it. The way you paint a cork makes me like them even more. Your white fabric with that subtle pattern adds that extra something.
I stopped by to invite you to check out a new blog that I just started. Calypso Moon Artist Movement. Artist are invited to paint a specific assignment. Check it out and join in if you have some time.

Thanks, everyone! Sorry for the lack of consistent work this month. We are very close to closing on our old house which has eaten into my time in the studio. Hopefully February will be full of creativity.

I agree with Dean, nice composition and interesting perspective!

Thanks, Diane. I appreciate the timely comment. We finally settled on our old house last Friday which has kept me from the easel. It is amazing how many hoops one has to jump through to sell a house. Of course I am now saddled with "cold start syndrome." I am going to try again today to work through it.
