First Press

"First Press"  (Watercolor)  © C. Eastwood, 2013
In class this is referred to as my "ugly painting."  Our class assignment was to take an object that most people would consider to be ugly (or at least an unlikely subject) and make it beautiful by turning it into a painting.  We were recently at the Dutch Henry Winery in Calistoga, CA, and there was an old, rusting wine press sitting outside the entry into the tasting room.  I fell in love with the weathered wood and the coats of rust, and immediately knew that this would become the subject of my painting.
