Moody Monday: Sugary -

"Sugary"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

Just as the title of tonight's post says, "Sugary" is the weekly theme at Moody Monday. I couldn't resist putting up this shot of a sweet, smooth and satisfying whiskey manhattan - sipped slowly while watching the sun go down over Big Moose Lake in The Adirondacks. Sugary? The memory certainly is! :)

You hadn't started sipping yet when you took this pic. The glass is quite full. Cheers. (But I prefer champagne or a glass of wine.)

This image is very beautiful, I love the contrast in lines (table) in combination with the glass filled with ice, it still has its transparancy. Just great Mick!

LOL (hiccup!) ... :)

Actually, me too. I believe I chased that manhattan with a glass of pino noir.

Thank you, Trijnie. In many ways this piece is was an exercise in the use of variation and repetition. I actually had to be careful - to the point of undoing a particular layer - to keep the transparency of the filled glass. It was a lot of fun working on this. :)

Whiskey, who drinks whiskey? I like the pic and your sugary memory (do you really remember that?!) and I could drink the glass if there was something else in it. ;)

Some drinks to remember, some drinks to forget...

I've been known to run with some wild women in my day ... some of them whiskey drinkers! Talk about memories! I do prefer a nice, red wine myself when you get right down to it. So, you bring two glasses and I'll uncork something dry and sugary. :)
