Return for Deposit


16 x 20 oil on hardboard
After two weeks, I've finally completed the full version of the Coca Cola bottles. I knew when I did the study I would attempt the composition larger in order to delve more deeply into that wonderful Coke colored glass. It didn't fully satisfy that urge, and I'm anxious to begin another variation of this subject. I picked up another of those terrific Dick Blick studio mounted hardboard panels this weekend for just that purpose. Before I return to that, I've got to get busy on another line up of ebay paintings for next week. As soon as those are done I'm back to those bottles. I haven't made up my mind as to where I'm going to send this as yet. I may just hang onto it for a while before I make that decision.
Update: Stricoff Fine Art, Ltd. called today, and requested that I send this piece to them. Michel and I had a nice talk, and I will be shipping this to them sometime early next week.
