A quiet moment, an intimate setting, the deep breath between opening a bottle of wine and savoring the first sip all coalesce in "Private Study," a very private glimpse into the life of a wine lover. This piece began with a photo shoot on the grounds of the Beringer Estate in Napa Valley during a visit marked by an abundance of casual graciousness. Arvid casts the intimacy of that experience in the warm light and wood tones that filter through "Private Study," imparting the stillness and reflection of an exceptional sensory experience in their physical elements.

Quiet moments of reflection are difficult to come by for Thomas Arvid. "Peace is where you find it," Arvid insists, and today he finds it most often in the company of his two rambunctious young sons. Playing on the porch on warm summer evenings with toddlers in tow is Arvid's answer to the solitude he explores in "Private Study."
