The Opened Series I created this numbered series when I began painting. I looked down at the dinner table one evening, and admired the fanciful beer bottle caps small breweries invent to represent them. It's a sign of pride when they take the care to make these decorative, utilitarian pieces- downright American! So I placed them in interesting scenes that they inspired in me. The settings seemed quiet and intimate, that is why they are all small in size. These are all gone to different parts; perhaps I will revisit this enjoyable series- so many beer bottle caps, so little time!
