|As with all art, it depends upon how you look at it. |
Even a tired theme can be reinvigorated.
|Both in the painting above and the one above-top a lively, approach to |
the subject matter adds a whole new element to a very stale subject matter.

|Wine on the Vine, Deborah Boyet|
|If your vintage still-life begins to look like this, |
it's time to give up on both the wine and the painting.
