An avid art collector, David, had already bought some of my art for his Malibu home. Now his son had just graduated from university, and David had bought him a bachelor’s pad as a graduation gift. He wanted to give the place to his son completely furnished. He asked if he could come and spend some time looking through everything I had in a very relaxed atmosphere and pick up a few pieces of art. Art collectors love to have private viewings. Once they are ready to make serious and very large purchases, they become very excited, for its a very special time to them. Most certainly, that day, I wanted to make David and his companions feel very special too. I wanted to offer them something simple as treat. I thought of serving them champagne and cupcakes for the occasion. I also wanted to make my offerings visually as beautiful as the art I was showing them. That is how I came up with my presentation of my simple bottle of champagne, cupcakes, and fresh flowers, pictured above.
