VINEGAR AND HONEY


There is an old saying "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" that my mother in law used to say. While looking through my pantry I thought about this saying as my gaze fell upon the new bottle of fresh field honey brought by my husband from a local bee farmer. I loved the color and thought that it paired nicely with the bottle of apple cider vinegar.

I love this Linda--the way you did the label and the humor of it. We have a hive and those bees have been VERY busy. Great painting.

Carol Blackburn said...

Would know that Heinz vinegar bottle anywhere. Love the combination in this piece & the wonderful golds

Gwen Bell said...

Gorgeous work! You've created the viscous texture of honey and the thin transparency of the vinegar perfectly. Great light!

Dusty Pines said...

you've caught the way light goes thru honey just so - lovely!

Thank you Stephanie and Carol...the label was really fun to do. I wanted to keep it subdued.

LindaHunt said...

Thank you, David! I would love to see you do some still life...thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Kelley...the honey was oh so challenging...but I kept after it until I got what I wanted.

LindaHunt said...

Thank you Gwen...as I said previously the honey was a really difficult and it took finding just the right values and color. I was looking for the light that would show the transparency of the vinegar.

LindaHunt said...

Thanks Dusty...it was a challenge!!!

Very nice job! I love both the colors and the brush strokes on this painting. We must use the same brand of vinegar.
