Champagne Pop

Happy New Year.
I am feeling a bit more festive today and looking forward to new fresh year. 

I wasn't quite sure if I would have this finished by today so I took this pic of my work in progress. After I got my hand - yes, my actual hand was the model (thank you hand) - in semi-realistic fashion I went to work on the bottle and fizz. I'm quite pleased with the results and it was fun to paint.
Oil on canvas, 10x10", still life. Available
 So again, Cheers all and God's Peace in the new Year.

Sail Away

From the moment I started painting this I was certain I wanted to entitle it "Sail Away" and I admit the lyrics to the song "Come Sail Away" by the band Styx really fit my mood of late, but if you've an ear for it listen to "Orinoco Flow" by Enya instead. Sometimes I feel, that much like my art, musically I'm all over the place. It keeps me interesting instead of stagnant.
Oil on wood panel (I'm not pleased with my application of gesso - I made the panel quite ripply) 8x8"

Anywhoo, I personally cannot wait for this not so great year to pass into memory. I know, don't wish your life away.
Happy (hopefully) New year.

A Stopper for my Wine

One Christmas a friend of ours gave me a funny set of wine stoppers. I'll paint the others soon, but this is my favorite. It has a glass door handle and is just beautiful.
