I try to make spontaneous movements with my brush so it dances across the canvas, panels, or watercolor paper. My subject matter is the world around me, whether it is my Midwestern landscapes, florals from my and local gardens, or gems I find at our local farmer’s market. In addition, I try to use color in such a way as to bring a smile to the viewer. And that is what keeps me motivated to create each day.

This is #4 from my series of wine bottles and vineyards. This is the perfect gift for the wine lover.
I love this quote from Julia Childs.
"Wine is a living liquid containing no preservatives. Its life cycle comprises youth, maturity, old age, and death. When not treated with reasonable respect it will sicken and die." Julia Child
"The health benefits come from moderate wine consumption, defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses a day. The Evidence: Wine drinkers have a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or spirits drinkers."
"(S)he loves me, (s)he loves me not." Who among us hasn't plucked the petals of a daisy saying those words with each tug? -Each of us hoping the last petal reveals: Yes! S(he) loves me! I certainly did as a child, and there's our primary theme of the symbolic meaning of daisy - childhood, innocence, purity. Credit to: internet source wys.com)
