"After Dinner Mints"

"After Dinner Mints" 5x7" Oil on canvas board
These three cordial were given to us by my mother-in-law. I love the soft minty hues and the way light sparkles and bounces through the glass. They appear to be at a formal ball, dancing a minute in triple time. The pale green one is getting ready to cut in, while pastel wallflowers stand in a row waiting to be asked onto the floor.
Of course, they also do a great job delivering an after dinner licquer...every now and then...and again.
Thanks for viewing my work.
