Painting: Wine Country Series – Now You’ve Done It!

I’ve revised the look of the wine glass and moon face. You can see before & after.

From Bluerock

I’m reposting this painting because I made some revisions to it, specifically the wine glass and paint coverage in the “moon face”.  Scroll all the way down to see the first version.

“Now You’ve Done It”

This is a loose & silly illustration-like painting… spilling some more wine. To see all illustrations in this series you can search on “Wine Country”

Mixed Media: Watercolour, Acrylic & Ink on paper

approximate size: just under 11″ x 14″

  1. I love your ideas – I hope you can run with it. No harm in appealing to a market with your natural talent and earning a bit on the side while you pursue your “serious” fine art. I am of the mind that as long as your art is from your heart, no matter if it strikes a chord in “the market” and sells like hot cakes or never sees the light of day in “the market” – at least you’ve stayed true to your creative heart. What I’m seeing in your work above is that you’ve created from your heart a style that just might have market appeal. You may have arrived at the perfect junction of your art and marketability. It appeals to me – so, I’m sure it will to others as well. And, yes!, it’s all part of the journey! 🙂 I’m hoping for success and all good things for you!!! (Don’t forget notecards!)

    • … And aprons, prints, postcards – all that stuff in a lot of wineries’ tasting room. I’ve been wondering who to contact rather than an individual winery; ad agencies’ creative directors & the like. I don’t want to make a little bit of money. I want a lot. Lol… A New Yorker magazine cover, the next Rolling Stones cover… and winery labeling. Lol… This is my innermost “what if?”… No ego here, just a dream. 🙂 Thank you so much, Mary, for your “likes” and support.


  2. So playful and fun! The heart-shaped mouth and the blue eyes are awesome! Wonderful colors throughout! I love it! (Just an idea…pitch it to a wine company as a label…negotiate a flat fee and then commission per bottle sold… I buy wines if I like the label!)

    • Oh thank YOU! I’ve been thinking about that & the extras like prints – framed or unframed – aprons, coasted etc. u live 40 miles from Napa/ Sonoma in NorCal. Just starting to figure out who the Byers would be. Part of me wants to be a “serious” fine artist but my graphic artist experiences are pushing me towards commercial applications. I try to push my art towards simplicity & wind up pushing it into a box. That’s okay, it’s part of the journey, right? 🙂

  3. This is a cool painting–I saw two different “figures” in it–the moon face and one other—but I would have to explain it in person. Love the wine series.
