5 x7 oil on masonite nfs
Not quite through with my current painting so
thought I'd post this one that I did about 10 years
ago. It was my first oil painting. At the time it was a
Miniature. I found it extremely difficult because my
Mural work was always so large. Seems funny now since
practically all of my work is 6 x 6" instead of 8 x 10 feet!
The scene itself was from a photo I took in
London where they still used glass milk bottles.
I am old enough to remember when all of our milk
products were delivered. Wish they still were, particulary
since the refillable bottles make so much more sense
than the wax-covered non-recyclable cartons or plastic
bottles that our disposable society uses today.
