Full Bodied French
(30" x 30", oil on canvas)

The name of this painting came from the pear shape of this bottle, which to me clearly said full-bodied. The glass is one of the shortest in my collection with a very generous bowl, and, I think, the perfect complement to the wide bottomed bottle. I had already decided that pomegranates would work best with my theme and really had to hunt around for them at this time of year.

The people at my local liquor store must wonder what I am doing prowling the aisles and coming up with such a strange group of choices. Shopping for bottle and label shapes instead of shopping for actual wine must be a departure from the norm!
