Still Life Austin
Still Austin Whiskey Company is nearby my home in south Austin Texas, and I practice the mantras “Paint Local” or “Paint your neighborhood.” I have visited Still Austin Whiskey a few times while on walks around the neighborhood, and enjoyed a tasting or tow of their fine distilled products.
Inspiration for Painting
I get inspiration for paintings from many various and sometimes odd places; for instance, this acrylic painting idea came to me when i was doing the morning Jumble word puzzle in the Austin American Statesman (yes, i still get the newspaper delivered). The final solution was a pun about “Still Life” under a cartoon of a hillbilly moonshiner, and this idea stuck in my head. So one sunny South Austin afternoon, I scoped out a few ideas, which resulted in this beautiful memento of Austin Texas for those fond of whiskey and/or those fond of puns.
