“Jumping the Gun” • Acrylic on Wood • 2.5 x 2.5 inches (6 x 6 cm) • 2014
Before I began working on a larger painting that included a wineglass and a scattering of grapes, I wanted to make a study of those two elements. I also realized that I liked the composition a lot, and so this small painting is the result. Of course, the only proper thing to put in a wineglass is, well, wine… so I imagined the grapes were getting ahead of the game. It's painted on a prepared block of poplar wood, and set in a deep-format black frame; please see below for an image.
