Sour – IF

Oh when handed sour grapes, make wine! That’s what I had to do today! :)

My first thought was lemons, but then I took a sip of the wine I had last night and thought, ugh! sour and here we are!

Happy 4th America, Be safe and don’t overindulge!

  15. thanks for your lovly comment on my blog. I love the bright colours in your still life and it was a nice take on the topic. I also thought lemons straight away, but by the looks of things a lot of IF’ers did! love your purple colours in the grapes and wine

  19. Hi Indigene, it is weird because i already wrote you a comment today, but it didn’t seem to come up on your comments. I love your still life and the vibrant colours particularly the purples on the bottle and grapes. I ordered my expression books from the US! I am in Australia. I got a fab Virtual Pose book Children and Teens and also some great expression books by Mark Simon. Do you work full time as an artist / illustrator?
