Green and Blue Glass Bottles


One of my favorite places to find interesting glassware and get inspiration is Goodwill. Two days ago I found this round green glass bottle. The bottom was stamped SUNSWEET. I can't image it was used for prunes, so it must have been used for something else.  It might be an antique or just decorative.  Anyway, I placed both glass bottles on a sheet of clear glass and saw interesting reflections (perhaps not this saturated). My goal was to paint spots of color and I was successful with the blue bottle.  I'm also happy with the green one which is less abstract.

  4. I love the quality of light in this painting! Although I don't work in oil, love your title painting of shoes, they're also some of my fave subjects! :) http://robinbirdpix.blogspot.com/
