Over the summer, when the folks at Florida Winefest & Auction asked me to create a special image to showcase their 2016 events, I immediately thought of a mermaid in a wine glass.  The idea was good, but pulling it off was a little daunting, and it took me a few tries before I finally got her the way I wanted her.  When finished, I knew she was the perfect image for this special organization that supports many charities throughout Sarasota & Manatee counties in Florida.  She’s titled “Perfectly Paired” and she’s a beauty!  I unveiled the painting live on the Suncoast View TV show so check it out – it was fun!

Over the next many months you’ll see her on marketing materials advertising Winefest events.  Plus, the original painting will be auctioned off at the Grand Tasting event on March 19, 2016.  I’ll offer prints and wood signs after the big events.  Please check out Florida Winefest & Auction for information and ticket details.
