This is a bright and vibrant still-life painting using oils on canvas stretched over a wooden frame. It depicts a water jug and a Glenmorangie tasting glass containing a particularly colourful dram (Isle of Jura Superstition) lit from above against a pale white background. Painted from a desire to capture the distinctive glowing tones of whisky in a glass, it is offered unframed and ready to hang. The painting has been varnished with professional gloss varnish.

The painting will be shipped either flat on the wooden frame, or removed from the frame and carefully rolled, depending on the wishes of the buyer. Ideal for any whisky aficionado as well as anyone who likes a colourful, fresh still-life painting. Slainte!

Oils on canvas, varnished, approx 40cm x 30cm (16" x 12")

This drawing is absolutely incredible! And it has a special meaning to me because I happen to have scoliosis myself :)

Lovely piece of art to add to my collection of male figure drawings! Thanks goes out to Jon who stuck with me through a slow shipping nightmare (that was the USPS's fault) but I finally got it. Cheers!

An incredibly dynamic little sketch painting. Even though she is laying down, her energy just radiates through her lines and brilliant color. I so appreciate this artist's ability to capture the grace and movement of the human figure with just a few lines. It was, of course, wrapped up professionally and sent promptly, and I loved being able to watch the package make it's way from Scotland to Massachusetts all on my computer. Thanks, Jon!
