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...)
