The Sunset Martini glass stands 8 inches tall and can hold 10 ounces. The unique shape of the martini glass makes it one of the best known cocktail glasses, it alludes to sophistication and fine taste. It is said that the wide open brim of the glass produces surface tension that brings out the bouquet of the gin, the cone shape keeps the ingredients from separating, and creates a nicer display of the olive garnish than a standard cocktail glass.
Every so often I explore new ideas - many of which never make it further than the local craft fair. Recently, however, one of these ideas became a new design. The trouble was I couldn’t decide on the colors of the sky... Did I want the cooler blues, purples, and pinks? Or did I want to add the warmth of yellows and oranges to the mix?
Once more I decided to call upon a few of my family and friends for input - which did they prefer? Well, that didn’t help! The responses were divided practically in half. While everyone agreed that they really liked this new design, they just could not agree on a color palette for the sky!
So, faced with indecisiveness, I decided to paint both. Sunset, the sun is beginning it's descent upon the horizon and the sky is dusky blue with swaths of pink and purple as well, a calm evening to end a summer's day.
