Hi everyone! It's been a few days since my last post... Sadly my "old man" computer finally died. "He" was over 10 years old so that's a long life for a laptop...but I was still sad. Luckily my husband is the best guy on the planet and took money out of his savings to buy me a new one because he wanted me to keep going with my art. He's the most amazing man alive. I hit the husband lottery with him.
Anyway, enough with the mushy gooshy stuff! LOL! Sort of...
My friend asked me to do a painting for her so she can give it to her husband as a gift on Valentine's Day. She asked me to come up with a painting inspired by the lyrics to "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" by Billy Joel. It's their song. In the song it mentions a bottle of red and white wine on a table...and she said it would be really neat if I could incorporate a sunset in the background, and also put the date they started dating on one label and the day they were married on the other. Soooo this is what I came up with!
Sorry for the poor cell phone pictures
Here are a few progress pictures along the way..
I haven't painting still life in YEARS, so this was a little bit of a challenge for me. I so used to doing portraits and painting in a different style that this was difficult for me.
