Amber Glow


Amber Glow, L. Daniel, 8 x 8, SOLD

I found these two old beer bottles on a ranch this summer when I was out scouting for paint sites. They were dusty and filled with dirt and bugs, but I loved them instantly. Their wonderful, weathered patina and rounded edges made them wildly compelling as painting objects for me, but when I held them up to the light, well, "delicious" is all I can say.
