Nice work, Liz.

I think those are the first painted barnicles I have ever seen.

Love the green of the kelp.

Hi Mea and Lillian,
Thanks for your comments! I had been looking at the bottle art posts and not even thought about the Challenge.  In fact I only recently looked at this part of the Forum.  I usually only look at Acrylic and Oil.  Well I had some leftover paint from a painting I'm finishing up and just whipped this up this morning. I love it when there's a story to go with our art!  ~Liz

Hi Harald,
I saw how imaginative you were with your bottle painting.  It was fun to do something you had to conjure up yourself!
Thank you for commenting!

Just popped in to have a looksee....nicely done Denise. I'll bet you would have made some bottle collector happy with that one.
Have had a lot of internet problems of late, hopefully will be ok from now on.

Lots of great work here guys, keep them coming!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Gosh, I am way behind in everything and have very little time to look at all the posts.  However, had a quick peek today and all the paintings are lovely.
 
Denise, loved the effects with the salt.
 
Faith, your fortune cookie in the bottle is so unusual.
 
Brian,  scary stuff ... I hope the guy in the bottle is dead drunk and not dead, dead!!!!
 
Harald, gorgeous colours.
 
Liz, also an unusual take with the barnicles. 
 
Good for you all.  So nice to see all the different takes.
