A friend of mine on another board asked me if I ever got time to do wreaths anymore since candles have taken over my time. I have been making wreaths for years. I view each grapevine shape as a blank "Canvas" that I can paint with colors and textures. I also prop them on an easel so my work is directly in front of me as I "paint". So the name "Wreath Artist" came to mind. I don't have as much time to do wreaths anymore (thanks to wonderful wedding customers). But I still enjoy it. Here is my summer wreath which pays homage to my military background and patriotic sense of American pride. GOD BLESS THE USA!!!
