I've never posted in the "Home Sweet Home" section, so I apologize if this isn't the right category for this post <3

The other day, my dad made a few balancing wine bottle holders, and he asked me to paint them.  He made 3 (one in a triangle-ish shape, one the shape of a wine bottle, and one the shape of a fish), and I painted two of them with acrylics.



The first one is BY FAR my favorite--took me about 2 hours to complete.
Front:



Back (which is dark purple; the sides are light green):



Close ups of the grapes:








Second one I like, but not nearly as much as the first.  It took me around 45 minutes:


Front:



Back:






And if you're wondering, "Profondo rosso" means "deep red" (as in "deep red wine" Wink) in Italian.  I didn't want to take a copyrighted name, so I made up my own.  :3
(oh, and New Haven County is where I'm located Smiley)





Hope you enjoy them!
And when a wine bottle is put in them, it will sit like this:

I love the idea of this kind of wine holder.  These turned out so wonderfully, too!  Very classy. : )
