YEEES .....

Love the deep browns and aged look. And seasonal too :)

many more yeeeeees
love love this one!

Your darks are especially rich in this painting.
I have an extremely large bottle (for a bottle of vanilla anyway) that came from Mexico. You may have inspired me to paint it one day though it isn't nearly as elegant in shape as yours.

I can taste it! Yum. The highlights on the brown glass are wonderful!

I always love the alchemy created
when you paint a cork in a bottle..
and you have done it again!


What a beautiful bottle you show here. I love the way the light plays on it. The seasonal ingredients for cooking and eating that you have painted recently give me pleasure. Thanks Julian
