Details: 16" x 20" 1 1/2" gallery profile canvas with colors of feather gray, hues of purple, green and gold. There are also accents of black--mainly in the label of the wine bottle--which was hand drawn in Zentangle form. The Zentangle portion is in the wine bottle label. This is hand drawn using Micron pen. To preserve the ink from spreading prior to varnishing, I used a regular gel medium as a barrier.
A high gloss varnish is used as a final coat. Artwork overlays onto the sides of the canvas. Art is ready to hang using wire hardware.
Back Story: In a few words, we love wine.
This piece of abstract--and also part Zentangle--was derived from one item: a wine bottle.
It's a big wine bottle. This wine bottle is about six feet high and is made of metal. It's a metal-cut cabinet with red and green glass embedded into the metal for grapes.
In other words, it's a holder for wine bottles. Yes, a very large wine bottle is holding other wine bottles along with fantastic metalwork, glass, and lighting.
This provided a conundrum for me because the room we placed it in had completely different colors. As an artist, I kind of went berserk.
I had to change the art that was hanging on the walls into colors that would complement the new, gigantic olive green wine bottle.
I am always open to selling my artwork that may or may not be hanging on my walls at home. I love the idea of making people happy when they receive a new piece of artwork. Their eyes light up. They connect with the image I had carefully sketched and painted. It speaks to them.
