The Martini Rose

This still-life I created with a friend's birthday in mind. She was turning 21 and wanted a "Nick original", as she put it. So I symbolized the beauty of a girl turning 21 with a martini glass and a rose. The original version actually had "Happy 21st Birthday" on the right and the canvas was extended to the right by double the size.
