Coke Bottle Flag

Date: November 26, 2019
Medium: Watercolor
Size: 12" x 18"

The challenge was, "Create a US flag out of Coke bottles"...

This was created for the 2020 Coke 10K road race in Corinth, Mississippi. It will appear on the race shirt and other promotional items..

I hit upon the idea of arranging the bottles in ice, that gave me the white for the stripes, and then I used the curves of the bottles to mimic the furls of the flag.

My goal ws to have you see this as just an American flag and on second thought you'd say, "Wait a minute, those are Coke bottles"...
