I started doing this painting while living in Florida back in the late 70's. My room mate liked the wine that came in that bottle. The original painting had a brick red background but I never liked it. Finally in 2005 and now living in Perth Australia, I got inspired to re-do the background and added the fringe on the cloth and finally signed the painting. It won second prize in it's catagory at the local Liddelow Homestead Arts & Craft Club annual art exhibition.
