Sometimes when an original piece sits around the house long enough (for me a year and a half), it may get modified by the artist. I was inspired to change "Wine" -- a piece I had created over a year ago. It has hung in my hallway all this time.
Then the other day, for some reason I decided it needed flowers, the sun and a bird. As I was painting it, I thought to myself how much I love wine and vineyards -- and the city of Temecula on Rancho California Road. I recently joined the Wilson Creek Winery Family by wine club membership. I was formerly a member of Ponte Winery wine club. Both these wineries have exquisite wine and restaurants. I have some very fond memories from these places.
My original depiction of my love for wine, lacked happiness. When I looked at it, it was just okay. But today, as I was painting, I was feeling so much joy and happiness by adding the flowers, sun and birds. I'm quite pleased with the modified version as it depicts what I feel when consuming the nectar of the vines and more of my artistic "style". Cheers!!!
