Willowvale Pharmacy bottles #135

Daily painting #135. 8"x8" oil on primed canvas panel

Last week it was a year ago since we said our goodbyes to my father-in-law, Peter Shedlock. Grandpa Pete was a pharmacist and owned a pharmacy called Willowvale...so many people knew Grandpa Pete....he was a legend in the community! I have a small collection of beautiful old medicine bottles and antique jars that he gave to me, still containing remnants of some yellow or white powder....the substance unidentifiable by the faded yellowed label on the jar! I bought a few of them into the studio to paint last week ....but just couldn't settle down to paint them.....they are beautiful with transparent and semi-transparent colors and shapes and I love the way the light catches them. Grandpa Pete you were in our thoughts the whole of last week, but today I finally found it in me to paint the Willowvale Pharmacy bottles!
