Broken Roses

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

21 May 2012 I don't usually take commissions but I was asked to be in a theme show called "Days of Wine and Roses". I assumed that the task was to have wine glasses or wine bottles with some roses but this would have turned my Foundling into an illustration. The trick then, is to elude to these elements and yet make it your own. The theme, based on the play is really much darker then what wine glasses would suggest. After all, the play is about alcoholism. So I broke some wine bottles (no easy task), kept to my somber hues, and, as fate should have it, actually found some beautiful steel blue rose drawer pulls. With these elements it was much easier to pull this together (the constant fear of cutting myself on the broken glass not withstanding).
