Oysters and Caviar, 2002

"Life is not all oysters and caviar!" says the lady in the glass of champagne.

Funny thing about this painting, one night I had gotten the idea to paint the glass of bubbly in front of the striped background, but when I got to class the next morning I was surprised to find a model there.  Rather than tossing my original idea, I just put the model in the glass - ta da!
