The Sunset shot glass stands 3.5 inches tall and holds 2 ounces. Designed as a small glass intended to hold or measure spirits or liquor, which is either drunk straight from the glass ("a shot") or poured into a cocktail.
Shot glasses are a common sight in the United States and often collected. However, before Prohibition, in the early to mid 1900s, thin-sided whiskey glasses were common. After Prohibition, these were replaced by shot glasses with a thick base and thick sides.
A sailboat at Sunset - The sun is beginning its descent upon the horizon and the sky is dusky blue with swaths of pink and purple, a calm evening to end a summer’s day.
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 and let you decide which you prefer. Of course, they could always be used together as well.
