Boozy Birthday Present
JewishGuy's birthday was Friday so for his birthday I made him a painting of his favorite Scotch. Well, it used to be his favorite, I hear rumblings there may be another contender. But he always has a bottle of this in the Scotch cabinet so he at least likes it enough to have a painting of it on his wall at the office.
I almost didn't do the lettering because that is my absolute weakness (painting lettering ... just ask my former job as a custom plate painter at a pottery painting studio). You can see I'm not very good at it. But without the letters it looked so blah and generic.
Anyway, I like the way it came out, and I'm writing this before I give it to him because I scheduled this post for the future so he won't see it before he gets his present so I haven't seen his response yet. I think he will like it!
