Family Reserve 2012 Red Wine
Flamingle is the second wine painting made after Octopus Hatchling. Inspired by the local resident flock at the Santa Barbara Zoo and painted with a leftover glass that caught my eye in deep red velvet hues.
Made with 100% wine with black and white watercolor accents
Each wine is different and oxidizes at a different pace. Each painting is photographed after the painting is complete to capture their true colors before they start changing. A painting will continue to change colors over time as it continues to oxidize, this makes it a living & breathing piece of art.
A wide range of colors can be extracted from wine depending on the processing or painting methods used. Either straight from the bottle, fermented in a container or evaporated sludge from an open container, wine painting can be very complex or very simple.
