While I was touring the Sonoma and Napa wine country one weekend I was thinking about the challenges of growing grapes. This, in turn, lead me to think about the challenges of bringing balance into my own life at times. One minute things can take an unusual turn, like the shadow in this painting. The next, like this painting, I'm balancing 10 different things. In the end, it always seems to work out.
