“Friends don’t care if your house is clean — They care if you have wine!”
This painting holds a special place in my heart as it was inspired by a joyful and memorable moment in my life. Earlier that day, my brother had gotten engaged, and that evening we all celebrated by going out to dinner. When the waiter asked if we wanted to see the wine menu, we jokingly replied, “Wine Not?” and ended up ordering a delicious Rioja wine that the waiter recommended. I captured the moment with my camera and was struck by the beautiful reflections of the patio lights on the wine glasses. As someone who is originally from Spain and loves Rioja wine, this painting represents the warmth and happiness of spending time with loved ones and savoring a fine wine.
