Nothing conjures summer memories for me more than a Tanqueray and Tonic. A dear friend of mine called them 'Summer in a Glass' and this one is in memory of him.
I like painting a still life a couple times a year because it helps my observational skills. I especially enjoy painting glass! They always say 'Paint shapes, not things' and painting glass helps me practice this, which I then try to carry over to my next landscape.
