The Heart of the Matter

As I began to collage the vibrant wine labels onto the elephant’s form, I felt a sense of excitement and possibility welling up inside me. I knew I was creating something unique and special, a celebration of the joy, freedom, and community that wine can bring.

The elephant’s playful spirit and the vibrant colors of the wine labels danced before my eyes, inspiring a sense of wonder and whimsy. I could almost feel the elephant soaring through my heart, its spirit filled with love. The phrase “Wine is the answer. Who cares what the question is?” struck a chord with me deeply. It reminded me of the simple things in life that make me happy and the importance of sharing those moments with others. The muted hues of purple, light purple, and pops of red and blue, along with the colorful wine label evoke a sense of fulfillment.

I wanted The Heart of the Matter to be a reminder that we are all connected and that we can achieve anything if we support each other. I wanted it to evoke a sense of joy, freedom, and love in the viewer, just as it did in me as I created it.
