"Asta la vista, baby"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel 8" x 8"

For those of you still out there, who were wondering what became of me - all I can say is I have been (once again) wrestling with my muse and that lady has been hitting the gym. She did allow me the best two out of three falls and I am happy to say I won the bout. I am picking up were I left off, with Asta as an ersatz canine Bacchus. I have been implored to create a wine label to be used in a fund raiser for the Humane Society at the Dogwood Restaurant in Baltimore. In all honesty, it did not take much pleading for me to take on this project, as the Humane Society is a charity near and dear to my heart. The study of Asta, which I did before the freeze-up acted as a service dog to guide me back to the easel. Good boy, Asta.
