Created by Greek artist Danae Stratou and the DAST art team in the mid-90s, this breathtaking land art installation is called “Desert Breath.” It covers 100,000 square meters in the Egyptian desert near the Red Sea, and took several years to create. At its center was a fairly deep pool of water, and the whole project was designed to slowly erode over time.
I have several old soda bottles (pop bottles) in my collection but have only used one in one painting. They have been on my list of Things to Paint for well over 2 years. Why have I waited? They are so much fun to paint.
The green glass really sets off the pink straw. Expect to see more Bottle paintings in the near future.
