It only hurts the first time…

Well … I popped my cherry. They say the first time you buy a piece of art is the most difficult, and they were right. However, they also say that you shouldn’t buy a piece of art unless you love it the second you see it … they were also right.  As my Vegas trip wound down, Grant and I stopped into the Wyland Art Gallery at Planet Hollywood just for the heck of it and found a collection of paintings on aluminum slabs by a new upcoming artist named Chris Derubeis that took my breath away.  After two hours of deliberation (with 2 of the worst sales women on earth), we decided it was time to pull the trigger.  So, I am now an owner of the original piece above (Grant bought the same one with white wine).Derubeis was picked up a couple years ago by the manager of Michael Godard and is expected to be the next big thing to follow Godard’s martini/olive popularity.  Check out his website above, as he is called the “Father of Conceptual Movement” and somehow found a way to make the painting move and shimmer with light in ways no oil painting could.  As you look at the wine glass, it literally appears to pour!

This iPhone jpeg does not do justice of the piece, but I hope you caught the shape of the splash!
