Artist's description:

Had this experience many times, havent we all! so felt inspired to paint it. Face is taken from an old photo, hands, cigarette and glass made up. I tried to make this piece feel somewhat claustrophobic, his face so near yours, you can almost smell the alcohol and smoke. As with most of my oils, it is done only with a pallet knife. Heavily varnished, it captures and bounces light off the thickly oiled finish. As i painted, i pictured him taking a big drag on his cigarette, and just about to utter the words....and another thing.....i love to capture moments in time, bad as well as good, because in my experience, sometimes the bad ones make the best memories!
