A Trunk Full of Wine

When I created A Trunk Full of Wine, I was inspired by the joy and abundance that life can offer. I imagined a playful elephant balancing on wine barrels, savoring a glass of wine in its oversized trunk. I could see the elephant’s trunk swaying gently as it sipped the wine, and I could almost hear its contented rumble.

I also thought about the way that wine brings people together. It’s a drink that is meant to be shared, and it often creates lasting memories. I wanted to capture that sense of community and celebration in my painting.

Finally, I wanted to celebrate the diversity and complexity of the wines that The Small Wine Shop carries. I chose to collage wine labels onto the elephant’s body to represent the many different types of wine that are available. I also wanted to create a unique and special piece that would be a conversation starter.

A Trunk Full of Wine evokes joy and celebration, reminding you of the simple things in life and the importance of sharing and community. The distressed hues of red, green, yellow, and purple, and the playful wine labels evoke a sense of whimsy and nostalgia.

The painting is a 12” x 12” wood panel, floated in a 19-3/4″ x 19-3/4″ white synthetic frame with white matte, and signed by the artist.
