This piece was inspired by some antique bottles my mother sent me. I love the shapes and colors of the bottles, but I did not use the original colors. I completed numerous drawings of the bottles first, then edited and designed the composition without adhering to the sketches. I allowed for changes while working on this and added some sections of the inside of a valentine envelope, which I thought was very interesting. Flowers were added from some previous sketches too. The background was invented; I had some ideas in the beginning and it just evolved into the checkerboard pattern.
