Even though this piece looks quite different for me, the genesis of this painting was in my need to continually explore technique. What if... you were to paint delicate skin, a silky veil, and some fine detail like a wine glass on a very highly textured background? Thick & thin passages of paint again.
Also I wanted the picture to tell a story. So I gave her a mona-lisa-smile! She is a class-act and would be very at home in a fancy gilded frame in one's climate-controlled wine-tasting cellar - or - in your kitchen over the wine rack!
