Abstract Art Incorporates Tipsy Martini Glass

I love abstract art. I also love drinking a nice Grey Goose martini. No, abstract artwork isn’t for everyone but sometimes you run across a killer piece that just captures your eye. I’m a firm believer that the original abstract artwork that I have displayed at my bachelor pad turns girls on. Well, maybe not to the extent that you’d think. However, it certainly catches their eye.

Original Artwork by Greg Cartmell

I can’t stress how solid this piece of art is shown above. It’s a piece that most abstract martini drinkers would love to incorporate into their collection. To be completely honest, I would have purchased this piece myself if I had room at my pad for it. I simply do not have any vacant wall space for it right now. It’s one that I liked so much that I had to share it with you. Let me explain a little about the piece itself…

For starters, the piece was created by a southern artist named Greg Cartmell. He’s been painting for years and this is just one style that he does. Anyway, I digress…

The piece is a titled Abstractini and the piece has its own attitude for sure. What I like most about this piece is that the background is completely black. It really makes the white paint pop and the martini glass filled with vodka, topped off with a single olive creates a nice talking point.

Lastly, and what I like most about this piece is the cool red signature that Greg has finished it off with. If you have a wet bar or a bar in your bachelor pad then this piece might be a good fit. It’s a 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas. Of course, the piece comes appraised and signed.

It’s an original, with zero prints or giclee prints being published and it’s very affordable. Like I said, I’d already own this piece if I had space for it. I’m showcasing it because it’s definitely man cave approved by yours truly!

I’m going to pour myself a nice cold martini right now! Cheers!

Steve Wynn Damages Picasso

Steve Wynn is one of the richest men in the world, and he’s built a fortune building the finest casino’s in the world.  He’s built up his brands on both coasts, and now has property in Macau.

His casino’s are among the most innovative in the world and they focus on luxurious accommodations to attract the world’s most famous celebrities and high rollers.

Steve Wynn Puts Elbow Through Painting

Le ReveWay back in the year 2006, Mr. Wynn added quite a bit of history to his art collection, which is massive, when he erroneously put his elbow into the canvas print called “Le Reve.”  This was a Pablo Picasso painting, not just any painting, of course.  At the time, he had a pending sale to Steven Cohen, a hedge fund billionaire from Connecticut.

The masterpiece was repaired and there loomed no visible damage.  In fact, it hung over Wynn’s breakfast table in the villa he resides in on the famous Las Vegas property bearing his name.

The 1932 painting is an over-sized oil portrait of one of the artist’s mistresses.  It’s got some odd features, such as the part of his anatomy as part of the model’s face!

In a bizarre twist, Wynn sold the painting to Cohen, who eventually paid $155 million for the piece.  It was a story that didn’t make news right away but when it sold in 2012, the Internet went crazy.  The initial, pre-damage sale to Cohen was said to be much lower in price.
