Welcome to the Snooth Forum, Renee.  We look forward to learning from you, also.

I clicked on the link in your profile.  I suppose you're pretty tired of hearing this, but there sure does seem to be a lot of Georgia O'Keeffe in your work.

Except these kinds of posts generally don't lead to anything. Here's to you bucking that trend ; )

Hey there,

Thanks for the peek at my site. Yes, I'm a female artist inspired by Georgia O'Keefe. Keep looking, You will find that there is also humor and playfulness in the work that was never in O'Keefe's paintings. Additionally, I'm a contemporary artist, also influenced by graphic visuals, surrealist artists and other contemporary female artists. But we're here to talk about wine, good wine... the artist's muse! Can any of you recommend a juicy red you can say turned you on to the point of creative inspiration?

hello guys...

Hello, SDU

Renee, I'm afraid that I am the least creative person you've ever met.  I'm an analytical, and while analytical aptitude does not preclude creativity, I have to say that none--not any--of my creativity is artistic.  The cool thing is that Mrs. EMark does have those genes.  So, we have a very balanced household.

I the spirit of trying to inspire you, though, I will recall the two most transcendent wine experiences involved wines made from Zinfandel grapes.  A 1974 David Bruce that we had with a dinner at home quite a few years ago, and a 1994 Ridge Lytton Springs that we had at a Hollywood Bowl picnic a couple summers ago.  I was amazed at what was in my glasses on these two occasions, and I continue on the quest to recreate those experiences.

All in all I am a California bigot, and I prefer big, full-bodied reds--Zinfandels, especially, from the northern parts of Sonoma County, Cabernet Sauvignons, especially, from the Spring Mountain District of Napa Valley, and Petite Sirahs from wherever they may come.

Hi there, welcome to the site! I must confess that I also took a look at your site....I thought many of your pieces looked beautiful and interesting. I hope your exploration and indulgence in wine proves to be fruitful and gratifying. Maybe you should start by describing some things you like or dislike, and I'd bet there are people here that can give you suggestions and feedback.
