WPA

This one is my first foray into the territory of "whiskey painting." Yes, that is a 'thing.' There's an association, the Whiskey Painters of America, based in Ohio, I believe, with their own charter and rules and 150 members, and you only get in by being sponsored by a current member. Which I'm not, as yet (I think I got on the waiting list though), but it was such a wild idea I thought I'd give it a go anyway. The rules are like this: Max. size is 4x5", must be watercolor but with whiskey, or whatever spirit you prefer, instead of water. So since I'm not a member, it ain't bonafide, but it's still a whiskey painting. Following is documentation of my adventure and the results.
