Pour Me A Pelligrino, 6x6 Oil

I mixed it up a bit by putting the San Pelligrino bottle behind the blue glass. I have these glasses in green, blue and aqua. They also come in purple and bright green, new this year. I may get them, but being extra wide they seem to chip in the dishwasher, so... maybe not. This was particularly challenging because the bottle showed through the glass, AND had a design of it's own on the label. I think it's kind of 'in your face' close, but maybe not. I was going to do some pansies today but I forgot them at home! I used Carol Marine's 'trick' for the elipses - and, you know... it was easier! Pin It

  4. I love this one. I love Pelligrino. I love the blue in the glass and it just makes me thirsty. I was surprised to hear it is only a 6x6 it reads so well and says it all. Great job!

  7. love the glass, really real! Glass is so strange to work with isn't it? I like that it is a close up.

  8. Kelley, you're right.

    This painting is "in your face" but that's what makes it great. The close-up composition makes this painting visually more interesting IMHO.

    I like the attention to detail on the label itself. Since it was hidden behind the glass, you could've easily not done much with it, but you did!

    Even the lettering of the label was carefully laid in.

    Good job!
