Got Vermouth? 5x7 Inches, Oil

SOLD
OK, for now... an end to the Olive series (some of you are going "YAY", I know!)  No, I'm not done with cocktails... I have a few more - ahem - in mind.  I love the blue in this Bombay Sapphire bottle.  And - what's more fun than green olives and red pimento's?

I get into the label, too...  maybe in another life I'll be a sign painter.  OK, tomorrow I'm headed to Maine for a painting week with some awesome painters.  My household will miss me, and I them... but I will be in a happy (but not internet connected) place.

  2. Kelley, love today's painting Got Vermouth. Well done. I love the way all those colors work together and the painterly brush strokes. Makes me want a martini and I don't like martini's. Well done my dear.

  13. Hey Kelley,
    Your olives are so delicious! They looks so inviting that I would love to pick at least one of them out of the painting, and eat it... Yun!

  18. I think this is brilliant! Those olives look so real, like they'd only just been taken from the jar.
    I really need to loosen up my brushwork :0)
