#320 - Orange Slice Belgian

2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) oil on artboard  Sold

If the painting god came down and told me I could only paint only one subject, this would be it: Light shining through a drink. I never get tired of it and I'm always captivated by the sight if it. If there's a bar in heaven I imagine every drink that angels order would have light shining through it like this. Ideally they would also be as tasty as this particular belgian beer. Conversely, bars in hell serve wormwood stout through which no light has ever passed.

I'll take a tall one and a piece of mango pie. Yum!
I hope Mother Earth pays your tab forever for this one.

Do you do workshops?

Sam- Ha! Yeah some paid p[roduct placement sounds great! Maybe I can also get the Chinese takeout that I love to go for that (but I wont hold my breath. Maybe a sign: "Will paint for food"

Sarah- I hope to one day, but right now I'm focusing on getting my painting production back on schedule. Plus I'd like to try some video tutorials first.

Hi.. this is Bhavna and I truly admire your work. You really have an unconventional style, although quite different from mine but I genuinely respect it because it is unique. It would be great if you see my work at www.mesmerisingstrokes.com and we exchange our thoughts and broaden our insights.
