A charging hippo's path is not the place to be.. but a charging wine hippo is better and much more delicious. This beaut was a commissioned piece for a researcher who studies hippos in Africa. This particular photo they liked resembled his hippo subject. 

Each wine is different and oxidizes at a different pace. Each painting is photographed after the painting is complete to capture their true colors before they start changing. A painting will continue to change colors over time as it continues to oxidize, this makes it a living & breathing piece of art. 

A wide range of colors can be extracted from wine depending on the processing or painting methods used. Either straight from the bottle, fermented in a container or evaporated sludge from an open container, wine painting can be very complex or very simple.
