Winning wine II

51/2" x 71/2" Winning Wine II Found Object Assemblage 
I am getting ready for Capitol City Public Market coming up this weekend. I have not participated for a couple years, I remember that it is lots of fun but also lots of work getting ready. Here's is one of my newest pieces ready to be packed up. I have sold all of the pieces I have ever made related to wine, so I decided to go with that theme. Besides that, I have a lifetime supply of corks! The base is a wooden plaque with a wine photo printed on it that I got at a thrift store on it I glued wine corks...I tried to use as many local wines as I had corks for. The glass is a miniature wine glass that I also found at a thrift store. Glued inside are some glass pebbles and behind the glass is a metal leaf broken off of something. Collaged in the background is the quote by Benjamin Franklin Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and ore tolerance.

If you live in the Boise Area and are an artist and would like to have a booth at Saturday Market but don't want to have to commit to every week...check out this great opportunity:
