snap


It's quarter to three
There's no one in the place
Except you and me
So set 'em up Joe
I've got a little story
You oughta know
We're drinkin my friend to the end
Of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer/One For My Baby

This one is especially nice of yours! I like the composition and colors.

Have you ever heard "The Piano Has Been Drinking" by Tom Waits? Love that song!

Hmmm, now I'm thirsty. You've captured a luminous, drunken mood here Miri! Love the colors and multiple bottles.

Great rhythm here...as it downloaded I got a bit of a sense of Le Trec

OMG this is fantastic Miri! I hate to say how much time I've spent in bars, working or otherwise, but you have drawn such an atmosphere of such a place. It's inviting yet mysterious. Set em' up.

Thanks for commenting on Wallflower 3! I just posted in minutes before and thought..nobody will see this. and by the way...I have a friend named Meira Oh! Spooky :)

OH WOW SNAP! I'm excited ... this is an amazing image, and bottles (especially lots of them) are a feat to paint! It would be quite a feat to drink that many too ... I see the reflection of naked you in the left front one! Get off the table ... they aren't for dancing upon!! (not in a public place anyway) :)

AndyDoodler said...

Wow! and a one- and a two- and a three- and a .... lots. I can hear Ol' Blue Eyes snapping his fingers now. Awesome painting! You've captured the feeling of the song perfectly. Left foreground- in the large bottle-- I see a reflection of someone with large hair - looks like she or he is deep in thought while fiddling w/hands?

Darn it, & I thought you were going to start telling a story! I always thought it took a lot of work to arrange bottles behind a bar. I was out at a place in Morristown called "The Funky Monkey" Saturday night. My friend Jeff & I were probably the oldest guys in the place. Anyhoo, I forgo my usual Jack Daniels for Vodka & Red Bull. It's overrated.

Janice said...

You caught it.., with rythmn in subject and through that developing texture...! Lovely lovely moody piece.

the heartful blogger said...

Wow, love the dark atmosphere, but especially love the bottles that seem to hover. Excellent.

Alina Chau said...

Hi Hardwax. You had mentioned in your comment on my blog, that my posts kept disappearing. I was wondering what you meant by that? Because for some reason when I check my blog, I have to hit the refresh button about 4 or 5 times before some of my illos will pop up. I thought perhaps that was something just happening with my computer and not my blog. Now I'm getting a bit concerned. Thanks for your comment by the way!
