Refresh

I love a good Mai Tai.  Unfortunately the one & only Mai Tai I ordered in Kauai wasn't so good, but maybe that was a good thing...because I didn't order another and another...and it was one of my goals...to go easy on the Mai Tai's!

Acrylic on canvas pad.
 This is for Illustration Friday - Refresh. 
I had a tough time with the reflection of the glass on the table, which is supposed to be granite, by the way, but I think it turned out nicely.

  3. I agree Rita. My hits were way down. And IF is the main way I get traffic to my blog. But it was definitely time for an update over there. Hmmm. I'm not sure what to think yet...

    P.S. My Pulp Fiction quote applies to your illo as well!

  5. oooooh! I've never had a Mai Tai, but yours looks delish! I think you handled the reflection wonderfully, along with the granite. The fruit looks positively good enough to eat.

  9. Woo, another refreshment with liquor. Does it say something about us when we did liquor and lots of folks did tea or refreshing dips in a pool? :D I think it looks great, including the reflection and granite! Really lovely, saturated colors and beautiful garnish!
