Glass Bottles

Based on a photograph of very old glass bottles from a collection, this rendition of a digital painting has been added to a potpourri of products, available in the following galleries:

Imperfection

In my considered opinion, its absolutely true – imperfections are perfectly beautiful. Unique characteristics provide interest and greater beauty than that which is otherwise commonplace. Relative to this vintage glass macro photography, it’s the air bubbles, variations in thickness of glass, color and discolorations, pitted surface, etc., which make it especially appealing.

Colorful Glass Bottles Collage

Based on photographs of several different antique bottles, this graphic design features a colorful collage with texture and typographic elements. Add a splash of color to a dull wall space at home or at work! A variety of print types (and more) are available in my gallery at Fine Art America – check it out…

Vintage Glass

During my childhood in Marquette, Michigan, one of my favorite hobbies was collecting old bottles. With my brother and various friends, we would gather our supplies (garden shovels and spades, gloves, plastic pales and old pillow cases), and begin the adventure to a local hillside behind what was referred to as the ‘Haunted House’. There we would excavate until we grew tired, carefully extracting from the soil whatever treasures we could uncover.

Many decades later, I’ve retained only a fraction of the collection which I’d amassed during my youth. Presented here with enhancements through the use of Adobe Photoshop, three round bottom bottles highlight a beauty in their imperfections, with air bubbles, thick and uneven glass, and a wonderful hue of blues and greens.

If interested, a variety of print types (canvas, framed, acrylic, metal, wood and art prints) are available from this collection at my gallery at Fine Art America. Thanks for looking.
