What's your wine fantasy? Romance in a bottle? Wine is many things to many different people. I hope this most recent of my wine series enchants all who view it.

She's been waiting a long time for the right man to make all her dreams come true and she's wondering if he's up to the challenge. He's finally found the right vintage. Wishes can come true.

I'm always looking for ideas to hook wine art enthusiasts. It occurred to me that a lady inside a wine bottle would be worth pursuing. I felt that all was needed was her in the wine bottle and a pair of man's hands opening the bottle. The challenge of rendering her so small was plenty and his hands opening the bottle was just enough to tell the story without a lot of other distracting details.

"Genie in a Bottle" will make it's debut at the Umpqua Valley Wine, Art and Music Festival on Umpqua College campus Sept. 10 & 11th, 2011 in Roseburg, OR.
