Seduction (aka "Moontini")
This piece has been continually thwarting my expectations since it began. The concept came from an ad campaign I developed to promote new late-night hours at a bar. Unfortunately, the campaign didn’t come out the way I envisioned it. So, years later, I re-created the concept as a painting. I initially planned to have a toothpick through the moon, but as the piece evolved, I realized that it didn’t fit the tone. I titled the original piece “Moontini,” a title I’m still quite fond of, but I realized later that the piece fits well in a series that I’ve tentatively titled “The Human Experience.” Other pieces in this series include Inspiration, and Meditation, with several more in progress.
