"Still Life with Vodka Tonic" 2015 oil on canvas 18" x 18"
I was going to paint a still life but wasn't excited about the traditional set-up. Then I thought about it differently. Place an object outside and paint it. A bowl of fruit on the ground wasn't going to cut it. The adirondak chair was interesting but it needed something more. I placed the glass of water on it as if it was a cocktail. I didn't think to put ice in it and it was dificult enough to paint as just water. So, it's a still life with vodka tonic, neat.
