I created a painted wine bottle for the Bakersfield Museum of Art again. This year I took inspiration from a drawing I created in 2003 called "Insomnia". Below is the drawing that I made during the middle of the night in '03 when I really was suffering from insomnia. I decided to draw instead of get frustrated and this was the result.
I reacreated the same idea of the drawing on the bottle this year... using a lot of blues and drawing little houses, one "lit" as if awake.
Below is the bottle in progress. I took it to school to show my students what I was working on. I painted the bottle first and then began the dots of color on top of the painting.
