Bottles Part 3

Although I have played with over 50 paintings of random bottles and adding some other containers, I am still exploring. I am going to revisit them all and try to accomplish a finish to each. Sometimes letting the painting in process hang out a while on the wall gives me a fresh way of looking at what can be done to make them complete, or complete for now! Thank you for looking and your comments or suggestions are welcomed!

I like that this one is becoming questionable as to what it really is?

I am enjoying the prompts "what if?", "what now?", "what next?".
Have a good day!

More Bottles, Part 2

Here are a couple more of my translations of bottles. I'm experimenting with lines, minimal color and scaling back details.

New Work: Bottle Series Part 1

I have taken a break from posting, but not from painting. It appears my time is spent researching, drawing, and playing with concepts, colors, or really messy paint! When I first started painting, I just knew I wanted to learn to paint, but really didn't have a subject matter in mind. Just paint! After almost 8 years, I have gone in so many directions, it makes even my head spin! What I have decided is only what I don't want to paint, realistic portraits, folk art, and waterfalls! Probably a few more, but I will stop there. What I have decided is to play with series, and boy do I have about 8 of them going right now! And I like to abstract whatever it is! So first I will post some from my bottle series. And sometimes the bottles become people or buildings or whatever. But it has been fun and I have over 40 now on paper with acrylic. These were started from drawings, adding paint and more line work.
