Hooray Beer!-8x6-SOLD

wanted to fool with painting some glass so i threw up this brown glass and tried for thick, decisive stokes.

Hawthorne Quote (from still life chapter): "This winter do some still life., and i dont mean pretty things like iridescent glass.....paint something that isnt anything until it is painted well. get stuff that is supposed to be ugly, like a pie plate or an old tin basin against a background that will bring out the beauty of the thing you see. then try to do it, trying to work for quality of color.
