"Blue Bottle Rocket"

Well, I'm currently having fun with antique bottles and ink wells. This is a small 3 inch long cobalt blue medicine bottle which I gave comparatively heroic proportions in oil on the 6"x8" inch canvas. I loved how playing with the light source did wonderful things to the reflected light. The glass bottle becomes, with a bit of imagination, a blunt nosed little rocket with jets firing small bursts of color as it rises against an ochre sky into the clouds.

TK - I have just begun my own blog journey, and I love the serendipity of finding diamonds among the dross when you click on "next blog". Hence I found yours, and relish the beauty of your paintings. Thank you for sharing them! Cassie (rectorswiferevamp) (UK)
