The Careless Navigator

Flaming Mug of the Tiki Punksters 12" x 16" oil on linen

Last year I was commissioned to paint this collectible tiki mug for the "Careless Navigator" in Australia.  I enjoyed the challenge of taking an ordinary still life and making it a dramatic scene.  The flames were useful in bringing life and personality to the mug while also adding a sense of movement and danger.  A few limited edition prints were sold, but I'm not sure if the Careless Navigator has anymore left.

It's time I get this blog back up to date, so keep a look out for more posts of my recent cocktail paintings!  Enjoy!
