|Salvador Dali - Photographer Unknown|
So anyway, probably his most well known, and certainly one of my favorite pieces of his is called The Persistence of Memory. You know the one, it has melting clocks, and a monster-ish half of a guys face in the dirt (which he used to represent himself in many of his paintings) which also has a clock melting on it.

So I have loved this work for a long time and one night while drinking a very lovely Bombay Sapphire Gin martini I got the inspiration to do my own piece in honor of The Persistence of Memory and I wanted to call mine The Persistence of Martini.
Well, it's taken me a while, but it is finally done and I am sharing here. This piece took me quite a while because I kept going back to try and get the composition right as well as make the content applicable not only to the martini theme I was creating but also to Dalí's original work. So here you go, I hope you enjoy it, and if you don't right away go toss down a few stiff martini's and that will help.
