"The Pause That Refreshes"
In my City College Acrylic/Oil painting class last Friday, I handed out to my students bottles of Coke and plastic cups. The assignment was to paint them...an exercise in composition, color mixing, and paint application style. I believe that "The Pause That Refreshes" was a Coca Cola slogan from the i940's. I have always liked this slogan, and it definitely makes me want to down a coke! "Coke Is It" from the 1990's is lame. This is my demo painting on stretched 8"X10" canvas. About 45 minutes painting time. The bottles of Coke were for export to Mexico where they like their Cola sweetened by pure sugar cane...smart people.
