A fresh crab climbs out of the wine bottle and drips all over the paper. Mr. Crabby is doing just that, painted live during Downtown Santa Barbara's Live Art & Wine Tour. This was painted vertical and gravity took hold of the drips as the painting came to live over the course of the evening.
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.
