Let's Start Something!

I was asked by Kim Crawford Wines to partner with them in a program they have started called "The Artists' Lounge"

In the spirit of supporting the arts, Kim Crawford Wines launched The Artists’ Lounge online community as a place for artists and those who appreciate the arts to share inspirations and/or artwork with each other. Members get the chance to inspire and win original artwork and a trip for two to New Zealand! All of the artwork displayed within the community will be a true living anthology, reflective of the times.

I was chosen by Kim Crawford Wines to be one of the community’s “Artists in Residence,” and will be searching for inspiration within the community to create original artwork. From now through January, myself and three other artists from different art mediums will select ideas and create new works of art. Share an idea now if you want to inspire artwork for me or the other artists!


Kim Crawford Wines views winemaking an art as it strives to capture the true aromas and flavors of New Zealand in each bottle by combining a passion for excellence with a vision for exploring new boundaries.

I’m excited about this program, and encourage you to join the community and participate in sharing artwork and/or inspiration with its members!

I will follow. Love the idea.

I agree that wine makng is an art. There was a movie years ago, chick fick- A Walk in the Clouds that gave me a whole new appreciation for wine, beyond my love for a glass of it. It is fascinating to visit a vineyard and listen to the wine makers describe the process and flavors.

Congratulations Gary, this sound really exciting. And absolutely love the self portrait. The contrast of colours, the light, all just perfect.

Hi Gary

I presented you with an award. It may not be something that you wish to place on your blog, but I wanted to show my appreciation: I adore your art and your comments make me smile.

Come pick it up from my blog. Well done. :)

Gary,
Wwhat a great idea and opportunity,congrats! I suggest your gripping photos of New York where you portray ruin and make it look beautiful. Since the exhibit is an anthology of the times, your photos of one city echo struggle all over the world and remind us to always look for the beauty....
