A while back I was commissioned by Timothy Harris Design to paint this wine label for Livingston Cellars, an E&J Gallo Brand. I was honored to learn that it was selected in the Professional Illustration category of Creative Quarterly 16 as a runner up.


I fell in love with painting landscapes as a young art student when I was fortunate enough to study abroad in the Parsons In Paris program.


Six weeks of lugging my French easel around Paris and the South of France painting every day en plein air was an invaluable life experience.


So, getting an assignment that basically calls on me to paint a landscape, with or without floating car, is a real pleasure, and having it recognized by Creative Quarterly is especially gratifying.

    If I saw this illustration on a wine label I would be interested enough to buy a bottle. Mission definitely accomplished.
