It's 1:57 a.m. on July 9, 2021 and I feel 'uncorked'. I cannot go to sleep and my mind is filled will pictures, words, and ideas. Today I worked my way back to my jewelry desk and realized how much I missed creating and using my tools, especially my torch to make the unseen manifest. My mind seems to be clear with ideas, designs, bravely charting the unknown. Uncorked gives you the excitement and perseverance to forge ahead in uncharted waters. These paintings represent the feeling you get when you feel like a new door has opened for you and you must just forge ahead.
