"Frostie"


16x12" oil on canvas panel

This stuff can't be good for you but it sure looks cool. This was painted from an image shot at the Toy Boat Cafe in SF by my daughter Emma. I handed her the camera and she shot a bunch of pictures. When I downloaded the images later this one really stood out.

I love how you captured the frostiness of the glass in the bottles as well as inside the drink case, and you really got the icy blue color of the drink. The Perrier bottle is also nicely done. It's impressive how much you are able to convey while still keeping it fairly loose. Nice work!

Thanks Merci! This was a tough one for sure. I think I learned something.... Uh.. maybe that bottles are very hard to paint especially when in a partially foggy glass case!
