I love to tell a story, whether it is in words or in artistic impressions, and my stories give the observer the leeway to define the art according to their own life. The painted bottles are like most of my art found bottles that range from 2 inches high to 12 inches high and in all shapes and sizes. The tops are cork with a piece of hand made glass art by either myself of my husband, Lewis Wilson. Lewis' talent is so beyond my dreams and his encouragement is priceless.
