Another Look

6" x 6" oil on panel
SOLD

Last weekend I went to Kelley Macdonald's virtual cocktail party.  I brought the wine. I thought the cork made a great painting.

What a fun subject. Great composition. Makes me yearn for a glass of wine.

Dana Cooper said...

You brought a bunch of wine, and you are right it works nicely!

Nice work Pam ... I like your painting style!

Thanks Cathyann, It was great to do a small piece w/ lots of background.

Karen, It is a fun subject. I think I'll keep the kitchen , or bar, in my repertoire.

Thank you Dana, I guess I could have included all the corks! Another painting!

Denny, Thank you!

You guys had a great party!!

What exquisite colors! And that you tackled that corkscrew and did it so beautifully? Amazing. Please pass that bottle this way...

Thanks Jan. I used a view finder to help w/ the composition. Some say it's a crutch, but it helped to focus in on just part of this.

Pam Holnback said...

Kelley, Yes, I could have done just this, but I didn't think of it until after the wine bottles!

Thanks Liz, I think I'll do another painting of this. I liked the new subject matter.

Autumn, Thank you. The background was white, so I really pushed the values.

Pam, Great job on the bottle opener and cork! That must have been challenging to paint! Love the concept! Beautifully done, and a beautiful painting!
