I have always loved combining the detail work of a still life with the whimsy of adding a bird to the composition. My main focus is to take objects of meaning or that I find beautiful and paint them in their best light. Telling a story through reflections, shadows and different textures.
For this painting I set up some of my favorite bottles (including Grandpa's wine) on my granite topped bar underneath blue pendant lights. Happy New Year everyone...cheers!
