Drinking Red Wine
Watercolor, ink on Yupo paper
I love olives and, of course, the olive pits go into the garbage can under the kitchen sink. One day I noticed the pits were being taken out of the can and chewed on. And, one day I opened the cupboard door to find a little mouse sitting on the edge of the garbage can with a pit in hand. Thus, began my love affair with my little olive-loving mouse. He shows up almost anywhere!
I took my first art class thirty years ago and discovered my passion for art supplies and creating art. I am a painter and illustrator and use whatever medium that will make the idea come to life. Right now my little mouse is on hiatus while I create artwork as the Artist in Residence for the Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust. However, the little mouse will return with his new upcoming video. Stay tuned!
