Dear Caesar,
Hummmm! Could this artfully expressed bottled elixer be ... a) liquid
gummy bear vitamins ... b) chickaboo joy juice ... c) a healing
emulsion that should be ingested while holding your nose and before
calling your doctor in the morning or possibly d) ... Love potion #9? ;)

One thing I do know, if it were Pepto Bismol, you would have painted
the inner ingredients a pleasing pink. Whatever the contents, this glass
contained restorative is well expressed and painted. :)

The still life presentation seems to be ready to make one's life still for a while, perhaps! :D:D Any other signiifcance for the nomenclature, "DOC"?:)

LOL:D:D:p:p Dear Mair, Your funny and witty comments are always a side show here and You're a great entertainer too together with a litherary phenomenon! It looks like the famous Venitian Triaca (or Teriaca), a potion good for any disease. Something that perhaps inspired also the old wild west quack doctors (or charlatans).:p Thank You!

Dear Wenkat, DOC stands for Denominazione Origine Controllata (i.e. the name corresponds to the indicated precise geographic, vines, etc. indicated as per official control). Only very few and most noble wines show the acronym DOCG, which means that it's also granted (DOC Garantita). Wines expert know them when dealing with Italian wines, which are not at all a negligible protagonist in this business. Moreover we have a number of autoctone vines not growing elsewhere here, some known also at Romans time, that they are probably more, as a number than the rest of them.
Thank You!

Only a mouse? -Super!
In any case, very good!
Once I saw a lesson on how people draw the bottle with the aid of two tools: a brush and dodge tools :)

Not that difficult, dear Mike. If You have to draw with the mouse straight lines, You just reduce the sheet percentage enough to draw horizontal and vertical lines according to limited excursions of the wrist, so as not to reach where it cannot keep straight anymore ...
Thank You!

So you say you played Caesar, I think you drank firstly, then played and then slept under the painting table...;) Must add... nothing in the world can be so good to drink like cinzano....wonderfull job on the glass..

I don't say I'm astemious, dear Anna, but actually I never got drunk, just a little happier than usual in some cases.
Drinking as a taste pleasure and to enjoy what is likeable to one of our senses is a civilized and quite different purpose than for a sort of drug addiction or to freak-out or to blast, as it used to be for many other European young people (northern ones generally) when I was young too.
There were a number other and more interesting social activities and amusements other than that one for us ...;)
Now things seem to go worse for all youngsters, alas ...
