6x6" oil on Gessobord

I was surprised to learn that the martini was invented in the US. The origins are somewhat mysterious but according to wikipedia it was first created in San Francisco in the 1800's or in NYC in the early 1900's. I like martinis but haven't had one in a long time primarily due to the fact that I often find it hard to function after drinking one. It was a fun challenge to try and put my own spin on this iconic image.
