Mojitos For Two, 6x6 Inch Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

SOLD
Well, turns out I missed the weekend cocktail.  I did another candy painting, but it will have to wait.  Do you like Mojitos?  Yum.  That mint...lime...  
I believe they are best when more than one of you has one.  This particular time a good friend and I were in a French Restaurant, no less, in Bristol, RI.  This was the drink special, and it was really, really a good choice.  I believe we had one each... but I could be wrong.
Today I had a blissful day hanging out at the studio with Paco.  My husband showed up later in the day, and then a friend and her husband stopped by - good company!  Sometimes.... I just love my life...:)

This is my Daily Painting for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings In 30 Days Challenge!

  1. I love your economy of brushstroke and the way you made this work with and the two glasses side by side. Those drinks look luscious.

  3. Perfect glass ellipses and know those Mojito's only because my son-in-law taught me how to make one as I offered to have one for him when he got home from work while I was visiting. The green and red are super!

  7. What a great painting! Your use of the complementary color scheme really makes this pop. I think I may need a couple of these yummy looking mojitos when this challenge ends :)

  9. Really love this one. The strokes you put on the drinks are just the right amount. The repeating of the verticals lines is cool, I especially like the stripes in your background, good call Kelley. We, painters have to make so many decision. Lot's of good decisions on this one. Congrats on the sale.
