Diane Mannion, 21 Cognac, 8x10" o/c

Found this colorful, tin cognac box (unfortunately, empty) in LA years ago.  It lives on top of the refrigerator and serves as a tea box.  Always knew I would paint it someday.  It's number 21 of the 30/30 Challenge... only nine to go.

You had me at the blue flowers in that gorgeously reflective glass jar...but the blue cognac box takes it to an even higher level - absolutely love this!

Thank you, Claire. Your comments mean a lot to me! Did a bit of research on the cognac and can't seem to buy it anymore. The box may have been from the twenties or thirties!
