After visiting some wineries in Colorado last summer, we noticed all the "cutsie" sayings on various items for sale in the gift shop.  I jotted several down on my iPhone and this became the basis of this series.  The result was 32 pieces. #wineseries #mixedmedia  All are 12"X12" on canvas.
0 to naked in 1.5 bottles

age and glasses of wine should never be counted

don't cry over spilled milk...it could've been wine

drinking wine is not my habit...its my hobby

grape minds think alike

i am
republican
democrat
X having a glass of wine

I could be a morning person if my coffee maker brewed wine


just give me the wine and no one gets hurt


save water...drink wine

step aside water...this is a job for wine

the best wines are the ones we share with friends


wine a little...laugh a lot
  

wine is sunlight held together by water

wine is to women as duct tape is to men
it fixes everything

wine makes mommy clever


wine...because no great story every starts with a salad

wine...how classy people get wasted

you can judge with one sip but its better to be sure


we have too much wine...said no one ever

wine is the answer. but I forgot the question

first thing on my bucket list 
is to fill it with wine

Borderline Series.
Today there are so many divisions between people based upon beliefs, experience, ideals, history.. .  These divisions have always existed but in the 21st centery they are exploited and hyped  and the gulf widens between us.
Joni Mitchell writes in her lyrics to "Borderline",
 "Every bristling shaft of pride
Church or nation
Team or tribe
Every notion we subscribe to
Is just a borderline."

Even though these lines create a separation between us....they can also become a path of commonality or compromise that we can travel along together.

This is the "series statement" for my most recent series.

 between love and hate

choose right


coping with conflict


defendant


everybody wins


for argument's sake

changing belief systems


it's complicated


lifeline


political wave


powerful knowledge


reach across the aisle


the end in mind


the front line


what the have nots have

"Smug in your jaded expertise
You scathe the wonder world
And you praise barbarity
In this illusionary place--
This scared hard-edged rat race
All liberty is laced with
Borderlines"
  Joni Mitchell

Its been a while since I have posted....Have you missed me?
I am working on a new mixed media series on paper, some of which are posted below.  I am working on titles so they are pretty new. Each was started with crinkle packing as the first pass and layers of paint, drawing media, gesso.
