Not JUST Monsters...

Believe it or not, occasionally I paint something that is NOT a monster or an actor who played a monster! Below are two examples of what's known as "Fine Art."

This is a simple still life done in oils. The challenge here was creating the illusion of the bottle being clear glass.

This was a Monet duplication. The idea is not to "copy" what you see, but to "imagine" what is was the artist was looking at when he painted it. There's a lot to be learned from the Great Masters...and the Great Monsters!

Love your "fine art", Frank! (all your art is fine!) Love how that lemon reflected and refracted all up and down and inside that bottle. Wonderful depth and saturation of color and a relaxing and dreamy soft focus treatment of the whole. Cool!
