"None of us perceive the world in exactly the same way. Our oneness lies in a yearning to touch and to understand. My work is an endeavor to share my thoughts and vision through form and color and relationships, hoping to charge my images with meaning which will reach across the spaces between us."

Over the years I’ve learned to appreciate excellence although I rarely achieve it. The closest I come is in the ephemeral areas of concept and integrity. But, since I believe that my next effort will be my best, I will continue to pursue excellence.

Archaeological evidence suggests that the earilest wine production came from sites in Georgia and Iran, dating from 6000 to 5000 BC.

Wine was common in classical Greece and Rome, enjoyed as a libation, but also utilized in medicines. Many of the major wine producing regions of Western Europe today were established by the Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans. In Medieval Europe the Christian Church was a staunch supported of wine necessary for celebration of the Catholic Mass. In some countries beer was concidered pagan and barbaric, while wine consumption was viewed as civilized and a sign of Christian conversion.
