1985
oil on canvas, 26 x 38"

*the* grandaddy of them all.
the assignment was to choose a painting by an artist we like, and come up with an abstract based on it.
I looked at a picture by Vuillard of a couple of people looking at bottles of wine (will find it someday)
and this thing just popped into my head, whole, so I sketched it out and executed it.

the shapes and composition were a major foreshadowing of much of the work to come after.
