My first experience with an Aperol Spritz was at a wedding in the Hamptons, my second in Paris. The impressionistic and vibrant colors remind me of the bold, bright flavors of the drink, as well as the surreal locations I enjoyed it.
The cocktail paintings stem from a weekly jazz session with friends in which we tried a new cocktail before playing. Each painting is based on my experience with the flavors of the drink and the different times I've enjoyed them.
