“Stewart’s Orange & Cream Soda” Acrylic on masonite
I’m not huge into painting, never really have been. Painting is intrinsically about color (and lots of other stuff, but for me, it’s color), and I prefer to focus on other things like line, composition, and movement. I took one painting (maybe two? Nah, I think I just had to paint some things for other classes) and wasn’t really happy with most of the work I produced. This still life of a Stewart’s Orange & Cream Soda is a rare exception.
Those odd looking orange-ish grapes were supposed to be pennies but they ended up too spherical. Even so, I was pleasantly surprised by the look of the glass. I liked this piece enough that it now hangs in our kitchen, tempting me to drink a cool soda any time I see it.
