On Sunday, my wife and sister had their first craft group meeting. I had some time to work so decided to paint some wine bottles, as we had been talking about crafts all week. We had also joked about a series of fish paintings with different food choices. Here it is, step by step...
You can hold the corks and turn the bottle to paint the entire area at once. Acrylic first coat dried in about 5 minutes. Then I added the grass and poured myself a glass of wine
Finished front view- "Fish With Drumstick"
The bottles give you 2 sides to work with so you can go wild!

Now that I have a studio, I needed a sturdy easel. They usually cost $200-$300 and up but I made this for $5. (I actually saw this setup at my uncle UJ's friend's house out in San Fran) I got 2 studs at Home Depot cut so they can lean against the wall.
Then I drilled a couple holes and added these bolts.

I decided to do a painting for fun last week in my new studio space (more on that to follow). I did a sketch at the CCL and when I had a free morning, put on some Sublime and got to it. I realized I had never done that before- probably because canvases have been hard to come. Also, I haven't had a space to paint and so all the time I spent working was on "serious" pieces. Here it it...

The art show was a great success! I sold some paintings (The Coffee Table, The Corner Table in the Bar, and The View of the 18th Green) and we had a awesome time. Thanks to everyone that came out, Mr. Abood for the amazing dinner, Carol and Rachel for setting everything up and Michael for coming through with my favorite wine- the Beaujolais.
