Wine Cellar

Uploaded: August 27, 2008 05:45:00


I don't recall whether I ever submitted this one.
It is destined for a 16x20 canvas to be auctioned at a wine tasting event benefiting the local abandoned animal rescue center.
I had to create a bit of the ceiling to be able to fit on a canvas.

Painted with Corel Painter X.
