Apparently wine wasn’t always like it is today. Of course, like everything, it is always developing. But recently I read something that got me thinking about wine. The author mentioned that in ancient times, wine had different ingredients. And with the thought of Jesus turning water into wine, it referred to wine actually being more like a divine elixir. I know it seems to some to be like that today as well 🙂 , but still …
I love that idea, don’t you? Hope we’ll find the magical ingredients again!
Anyway, I wanted to start today’s post with some new paintings with a wine theme (and got distracted). My latest one is a still life in a classic style: wine with grapes and cheese and a sunflower:
And then I also made another painting in a different style with champagne. This is a beautiful painting to celebrate love, great as a wedding gift or just to be in a happy mood. I chose a contemporary light grey as background color, which also makes it fit in most modern interiors. So bring on the bubbles:
It looks like I will be creating more art with a wine theme, but until then you can find more art with a wine theme in the art gallery
Today I am featuring some brand new birthday cards for wine and beer lovers who also love cats or dogs. Let’s start with the cats. There are two new cards with cats and they both wear glasses, and you guessed it already: sure you need your glasses (of wine). This is of course a wink to those of us of a certain age who need reading glasses 🙂
Today’s feature is a black design with a gold stylized modern Christmas tree outline. Elegant and beautiful for the Holidays! And also a nice treat for wine lovers, as I made a personalized wine label with this design:
Any time is great for wine if you are a wine lover. But I personally think Christmas is special in that respect. Don’t you love that story about Jesus turning water into wine? Today I am featuring some new designs of personalized wine labels for Christmas. Great to use for your home brand wine or to serve with a Christmas dinner. You can of course also surprise the host of your party with a personalized gift. The first design shows a festive series of golden candles with pine twigs and a stylized Joy text image (which you can scale, drag or delete if you like):
Are you looking for a gift for a wine lover that is personal or that isn’t necessarily wine? Today I am featuring an original fine art design with a wine theme. It is a Tuscan inspired painting of a landscape with red wine, grapes and string lights as seen through a stone arched window. I am starting with a coaster:
If you love wine, you don’t want to miss out on Halloween. Today I am featuring the new wine labels with a Halloween theme. The first one is a vintage design with cat. You know that for cats Halloween is one of their favorite days of the year, although it must be said that the “treat” part is what they like best … 🙂
You can use this wine label as a reward for the best costume, or customize it any other way:
Whether it’s a birthday, a retirement or bridal shower: a celebration isn’t the same without wine! Today I am featuring some gorgeous new wine tasting party invitations. The first one has festive string lights and colorful grapes:
I find wine a very inspiring subject to paint. There are so many ways to create a wine themed painting. Today I am showing a collection of different styles of paintings, all with wine or grapes as center theme. I start with my latest painting, inspired by cubism:
And this next painting I originally started to create a wedding invitation, but then decided it would be more beautiful as a painting for on the wall. You can see a lovely landscape with poppies and an artistic wine bottle. A lantern in the tree adds that romantic touch …
And classic Italian architecture is also a theme that you will find more often in my paintings. Of course nothing better than to combine it with a good glass of wine!
And this pale teal and blush pink painting of wine at the beach also started out as a wedding collection. Perfect for beach lovers!
That’s just a few of them. You can find more in the gallery
Do you want to say Thank You to someone or do you have a celebration coming up? You may like the new personalized wine labels. I’ve created a bunch of them, for birthdays, to say Thank You to a teacher and more. I am featuring some here:
Do you have something to celebrate? A birthday or other happy occasion? It’s nice to have wine with your own personalized label to serve at the event or to offer a custom gift: wine with a personal label.
I’ve created two new wine labels, both of them customizable for any situation. The first one shows an elegant classic burgundy purple design with painted grapes:
