Painting L.A. Grit: Stained Glass Bottle Fodder at Villains Tavern July 18, 2011


I felt like a kid in a candy shop. I wondered what flavors they were?


I imagined, if they were alive today, Louis Comfort Tiffany and John la Farge would be quite bemused to sit down at Villains Tavern; have a drink or two and gaze in amazement at the shelves stacked brightly with illuminated bottles of colored glass. Reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues... all sparkling hues.

We had people in costume, good cheer and chatter; all made for a lively combination platter. But enough of this atmosphere, and  ambiance,  it was time to go do our night painting dance.
