Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Still life study of a Tia Maria bottle using tempera watercolour paints. The painting is an expressive representation with loose flowing brush strokes and is a fluid blend of wahes and opaque mark-making. The blend of rich sharp saturated colour is emphasised by the swashes and daubs of heavily muted mid tone greys.
The bottle stands alone centrally and is in an upright position with the label facing the viewer. It is as though the bottle is on display but has become a shrine in it's isolation which may represent the pleasure and beauty in the design of the bottle. On the other hand it may be a reference to the contents of the bottle and its use either for an individual in a solitary setting or for more than one person in a social environment.
This is a beautiful painting that encompasses aesthetics, mood, emotion, society and marketing.
