It's The Real Thing, 8x8 Oil

I've been saving a couple of small bottles of Coke since a holiday. I won't say WHAT holiday, but it was a long time ago! I loved the taste of the soda from these bottles when I was a kid, and I thought I'd like to explore the way the light hits the greenish glass bottle, then goes through the brown liquid, turning it red, orange and gold. Then, throw in a shadow (on a polka dotted fabric)... and you've got a loooong Daily Painting session! But I love a challenge, and loved doing it. Pin It

  7. Hi Melissa! Thanks! Pam and Sandy I really appreciate your comments. Paula and Manon - if Coke still tasted like this I'd still drink it! Katie May I'm glad this is bright and colorful enough for you - and I apologize in advance for tomorrow!

  8. Wow, It IS the real thing! - my favorite part, is the top of the bottle ( the greens with the red top) Great detail without being " too much".

  10. Does it even taste the same? I've been drinking DC for so long I wouldn't know, BUT my memories of drinking one of these out of the bottle straight out of the cooler are as fresh as if it were yesterday.
    That was my thought when I opened this.
    Great reflections and logo too.
