Old Wine Bottle


5"x7" acrylic on Masonite

for purchase information contact me at miedemastudio@earthlink.net

I went to a garage sale over the weekend and found this old bottle along with many others. There is no lettering on the bottle except the crest that is molded on the front. I can also see that the bottle is hand made because it is not perfect in shape. There are also many bubbles and defects within the glass itself which tells me it was hand blown. I am not sure when or for whom this was made but I have a feeling it may be worth something?

I was so excited to paint this bottle and I think it turned out fairly well. I am looking forward to painting the next one!

  1. Tough subject! You did a great job. You can really feel the glass with all your value shifts. Nicely seen!
