bottled up

I traveled to North Wilkesboro, North Carolina last week to take some work to Taupe Gallery.  I met the owners at a show in NC and so appreciated their enthusiasm for my work that I decided to trek up there with some paintings.  It is a beautiful gallery in a gorgeous area.  Mountains all around.  Mountains are always worth the drive.
I hit some of my favorite places on the way home.  This French seltzer bottle was a new purchase along with another globe jar dating back to the late 1800's.  My love of bottles goes way back to finding them at my grand parent's farm when I was little.  It is nice to justify the purchases because I can paint them over and over.
This is painted on a 24 x 24 x 2" canvas.
