Bottle Collection FINAL

"Bottle Collection"
oil on panel
18 x 24 inches

I said to a friend recently, a long painting is like reading a good novel - you want to finish it but you're sad when you're done!

This painting took over 3 months, and it's my longest and largest still life yet. Posting photos of paintings online tends to make every piece seem to have the same scale, but this one is significantly larger than any I have done before.

I won't be able to make a movie of this one, but here's a little slide show of all the stages of drawing and underpaintings. You can also click here to see it larger.
