Life's Pleasures

“Life’s Pleasures”

Limited Edition Giclee on Canvas 32 x 42.5 inches Edition Size: 195 Plus 75 Artist Proofs

All signed and numbered by the Artist

Nothing brings people together quite like great wine and great art. Unique to this piece, Arvid displays an array of select French luxuries. From the bubbles in the champagne to the reflections on the decanter, the impeccable detail and perfect balance of space bring incredible depth to the piece. “Life’s Pleasures depicts an evening of enjoying the finer things in life surrounded by friends and family.

After meeting Thomas, the collector of “Life’s Pleasures” would not accept the piece without first meeting the whole Arvid family. This gave Arvid the unique opportunity to make the delivery into a family affair. The two families enjoyed getting to know each other on a trip that paralleled the piece itself. Arvid makes happiness a priority by balancing his work and his personal pleasures every day, making him and his art a pleasure to all who encounter them. C’est la vie!

 

Lucky

“Lucky”

Limited Edition Giclée on Canvas 43 x 28 ¾ inches Edition size: 195 Plus 75 Artist Proofs All signed and numbered by the artist

Soaked in the warm, rich tones of the wood table and the ruby red wine, “Lucky” is a testament to Thomas Arvid’s singular ability to capture the opulence and seduction of sharing a beautiful wine with great friends. Each segment of this gorgeous painting is a work of art on its own. From the deep shadows on the crate, to the intricate reflections in the glass, each detail is perfectly crafted and proof that it is not mere luck that made Arvid “America’s Preeminent Painter of Wine.” While he feels “Lucky” to do what he loves, we feel “Lucky” that he shares his talent and passion with us.

As an artist, Thomas Arvid strives not just to create beautiful works of art, but to also craft his life like a work of art. Whether it is an easy, festive table setting for a tropical breakfast with friends, a fabulous chef prepared wine dinner under the stars, or a seasonal supper prepared for the family shelter, he looks for all the details to put together an artful whole. When work called him to move to Maui this year, he seized the opportunity to show his boys how to live an artful life. Arvid knows how “Lucky” he is and transforms his gratitude into service to the community: through donations, ambassadorship and hands-on service to the needy.

Open to Suggestions

Open to Suggestions”

Limited Edition Giclée on Canvas20 x 30 inches Edition size: 195 Plus 75 Artist Proofs All signed and numbered by the artist

Hinting at an evening spent in great company, tasting and comparing different vintages of the same wine, “Open to Suggestions” illustrates, once again, that nobody captures details and nuance like Thomas Arvid. Taking a single element that has the potential to be redundant (all corks from the same wine), Arvid arranges them unexpectedly and shows us, unequivocally, that each one is unique. By highlighting the different shades of the corks, the individual stains, and the differing textures, Arvid takes something repetitive and predictable and transforms it into something intriguing and unexpected, much like a jazz musician transforming a traditional melody into an exciting arrangement.

Since taking a leap of faith in the early 1990s, quitting his day job, and selling his possessions so he could focus solely on creating art, Arvid has been adamant that his work be original. Painting wine at a café in Atlanta early in his career, he became locally known as the “Wine Artist,” and quickly had a waiting list for his next painting. He took his first trip to Napa Valley to make sure no other artists were already exploring his oeuvre, and history was made. His relationship with Silver Oak Cellars was planted in the mid-1990s and continues to flourish today. In celebration of Arvid’s release of “Open to Suggestions,” Silver Oak Cellars is providing corks for customized frames for this dynamic work of art, a terrific opportunity for collectors created by Arvid’s investment in authenticity and quality in his work and relationships.

“Well Red”

Long a trademark of Arvid’s, the color red reaches breathtaking new heights in “Well Red.” At first glance, the striking vibrancy demands full attention but with a second look, the subtle reflections hint at the party at hand. Eagerly awaiting an invitation to taste, the playful silhouettes encourage us to take a seat and share the fine spread of wine.

Through his art and travels Arvid finds constant reminders of his good fortune: “I always remember how blessed I am to be able to work anywhere, travel and see firsthand how wine and art bring people together.” With the freedom to travel and paint in any setting comes the freedom to add new elements and unique perspectives to a subject that is so universally loved.
