Who Fits This Cork?


sold

I have a large collection of bottles, and have been intending to do more paintings of them for a while. I also have a lot of plates, and wanted to share something I recently bought at IKEA that makes my collection much easier to manage and access. The little metal dividers (on the bottom shelf) expand and contract to the exact size you need. I have 2 of them right in a row, so each one has like 7 prongs, one on each side. So rather than juggling a huge pile of plates every time I need a certain color, and then trying to re-order them by size (because that way I can see them all), I jut slide them right into their place! Cool, huh?!

Those colors go beautifully together Carol. Your glass is what caught my eye about your work the first time I saw it. :) Just love seeing you post again.

And this is a question about your cafe press store. I'd really like a Eat Sleep Paint pullover hoodie (not the zip kind) but I don't see them in your shop. If you can add them I'd love to buy one. :D

I have that divider and about one of everything else at Ikea. Another incredible painting!

Gonna buy a plate holder for that same reason.
Slippin' slidin' plate prop pile :D

Very cool! Love the painting too! I have lots of still life stuff and must get it organised, yours look great!

I have to say the painting looks like spatiality.
