Red objects...


I wanted to paint this wine stopper because it had both a bright bluish-red cap and an orange-red rubber stopper, but in the scan the colors look pretty much the same. Oh well, it was a welcome break from painting bad apples. Now I'm going to sit in the sun on the deck, drink a glass of wine and listen to Obama's speech which my son just e-mailed to me.

(This is a giant size wine stopper. Imagine how much wine would be in the bottle it fit, more than enough to make me forget my painting woes...)

I like the quirky nature of this stopper. I can see why it appealed to you. Your rendering is a nice balance between loose paint and graphic shape, especially in the white resists and shadows.

Red is my favorite color and it has really been lifting my spirits to come by and see such glorious hues!
