Things Go Better with Coke

"Coca-Cola Machine" oil on panel, (12" x 6") 2015
The Baltimore Museum of Industry has a wide assortment of vintage objects in its permanent collection. This mid-century Coca-Cola vending Machine has been sitting in their lunch room for years. One cannot purchase an ice cold bottle of coke from it. In fact I assume it's there merely to amuse the diners and patrons. It's a pretty old piece that probably sold those 6 1/2 ounce, green-cast, glass bottles of the vanilla and cinnamon flavored beverage.
The original bright red paint is still intact, save some dings and dents, and it begged me to do a painting of it. So even though I usually come alive with the "Pepsi generation"I could not resist this machine's appeal.  So here's a little oil painting to honor its position in my favorite Baltimore museum.
