Perrier Jouet et des Fleurs

11x11" Oil on Stretched Linen

Nearly fifteen years ago, my husband and I received this very special bottle of champagne as a wedding gift.  It came with a set of hand-painted champagne glasses, in a beautiful gift box.  I thought these Japanese magnolias looked nice with the painted flowers.  I have gotten a lot of mileage out of the Beauty Roses.  It seemed fitting to paint them one more time, certainly on Valentine's Day.  Mike was surprised and pleased that I had kept the bottle, and even more pleased to see me painting this scene.  I enjoyed a lovely dinner with my valentine!
