"Shoulder to Shoulder" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD

"Shoulder to Shoulder" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas
Recently, the Art on Main gallery has been reaching out to other local businesses to expand our reach into the community.  We just teamed up with the Westford Package Store, a family owned business that has been in town since the 1950s.  They recently expanded their space and asked if we wanted to hang some artwork in their venue.  I've never really painted liquor bottles but figured this would be a great subject for their walls.

I'm not much of a drinker (unless you count water and tea), so I had to raid a friend's liquor cabinet for some sources of inspiration.  Bottles are really, really hard to paint.  It is really hard to make them symmetrical!  I felt like a needed a glass of wine after finishing this one.  Lo and behold, a few days after the hanging, I got a call that the painting sold right off the wall at the Westford Package Store.  How cool is that?  

Art on Main is having our monthly open house on Thurs, March 6 from 5 - 8 p.m.  The Westford Package Store is providing a sampling of their wines for our patrons.  We will also have some traditional Irish music provided by 2 members of  Sligo Trad.  So, if you live in the Westford, MA area, stop by!

Congrats Laurie! I really like this painting and you succeeded at making the bottles look good enough to drink from!
