The Last Drop

The Last Drop, 6x12 oil

Recently I saw a bottle of Coke being sold in a store.  It reminded me of when I was a kid, (when glass bottles were the norm).  I was inspired to paint it, loving the green tinted glass with the red label.  I purchased a small case, (six bottles).  Wow!, it was probably about the same price as buying 18 cans in a case.  I just love that there is still the choice of purchasing a glass bottle of pop, but I don't even think the bottles are returnable anymore, they just get recycled.  I'm hoping that glass is coming back and plastic is on it's way out.  Since I bought a case, I think I will have to do a few more pop bottle paintings.
