"After Work" --- Sold

I drink socially only. Usually a beer and a glass of wine will do it. But drink Tequila was absolutely new to me. This happened at the last day of my workshop at Ajijic, Mexico. We had a potluck party. I was told by one of the artists that I MUST drink Tequila. Well, here is Mexico, I got to follow the rules. So I did. I finished a 50 ml bottle in two gulps..... Wow!!! It was strong! But it tasked really sweet and it smelled really great too. It wasn't what I thought it was. "Now, I am ready for another painting" I thought. Of course, I didn't do it, but I really had a great time at the party afterwards. I took the empty tequila bottles back to my studio and did this tequila painting today. I hope you all like it. Be honest to you, I didn't drink before I paint this one.

Fifty? Had to read again. Fifty ml is about 2 ounces. Must clear the sinuses! :)
I really like that "tacita roja".

I believe you, to do a painting like that, you really need to be clear and collected! I love it!

Did you drink a BOTTLE of that stuff? Hoping it was only a 'nip' :) This is a really, really nice painting. The mug pops off the canvas!
