Here is another bottle for “The Art of Wine” event coming up on July 19th. Rather like night and day compared to the first one! 🙂 This bottle was covered with old dictonary pages before I began drawing/painting on the surface. I had printed this vintage lady on a book page several months ago, not quite sure what I’d use her for and she just seemed to fit perfectly!
From there I just let my imagination run. Evidently it ran right to a flower gardern, which isn’t surprising as I’d been putting in flower gardens around the house!
I went back over some of the detailed background with some neutral spray paint to soften and tone down the colors, they were a stealing the attention from the beautiful lady!
So that was my fun with giant wine bottles. Hope you enjoy it too!
Saturday, July 19th from 5 – 10 p.m. in the Carmel Arts & Design District is “The Art of Wine” event! The streets are closed and wineries and artists set up their booths for your sipping, viewing and purchasing pleasure. What fun! As part of the celebrating area artists were asked to created art on GIANT wine bottles that will be on display throughout the district. This year I created two bottles, just for fun! Today I’m sharing the first. Spray paint, digital art collaged onto the bottle and then some crazy doodles with markers.
“Art Into Poetry” returns as local Boys and Girls Club members write poetry inspired by the art in this month’s shows with in a workshop with Ivy Tech students. Also back by popular demand is wine tasting by Big Red Liquors.
A couple of months ago I had a nice two-day trip down to southern Indiana to visit some wineries and have a little R&R with my dear friend/sister-in-law. We ended up staying in a cottage at one of the wineries. It was beautiful there and we were literally just a few steps from the rows of grapes growing in the warm sunshine. I couldn’t resist taking some images of both the grapes & the scenery surrounding our little cottage.
The cottage included some wonderful treats for breakfast plus a bottle of wine each evening along with cheese, fruit & crackers to nibble on. It was a relaxing and enjoyable mini-vacation, and I ended up coming home with enough wine to re-stock the wine rack for several months! 🙂
Now that I am posting these images and remembering the trip I suddenly have the urge for a glass of wine!
