Coke Carton - 24 x 24 - oil on panel
Well, I've spent two solid weeks working on this painting, but I think it's finally done. I find myself wanting to hang onto it a little longer, but I don't think I can get much more out of it. Mark Karelson at Mason Murer Fine Art is hosting an "event" for some of the top brass at Coca Cola in October, and invited a number of artists to fill his space with Coke related art. I painted a "half" version of this composition a while back for Stricoff Fine Art, and always wanted to revisit it so I could take full advantage of all that type on the carton. I thought this show would be a good opportunity to try it again. There are a couple of other group shows this fall I want to participate in as well, so this may be my only contribution to the Coke show. If I can get those other projects done quickly, I'll try and squeeze in another piece. I'm really looking forward to seeing what all the other artists come up with. I think it's going to be a great show.
