Prepare for Takeoff

Prepare for Takeoff, 16"x20" oil on linen

Welcome to my new blog.  It's a pretty simple idea... I'm a painter and I love cocktails.  

I'm working on a whole series of classic cocktail paintings right now, so there will be postings like this still life, bar scenes and the occasional portrait of interesting people in the cocktail world.  The first of which will be the great bartender & owner of  320 Main in Southern California.

So if you like art and you are into cocktails, stick around and tell your other crafty cocktail friends.

The painting above is my deconstructed Aviation.  One of my favorite classic drinks and now that I finally picked up a bottle of Creme de Violette I can make it in the original way.

Thanks for stopping by, more to come...
