With a new look and a new site comes more new things! Every month the fabulous Elaine Brown, a philosopher turned illustrator, writer and wine explorer will be drawing whatever her heart desires and sharing it with us. She’s putting color and words to paper to illustrate a moment, a wine, a pairing, a feeling – pretty much anything that is inspiring her in the moment. With sunny days and warm summer nights basically demanding that you get your ass outside and soak it all up, I can see why a Sunday picnic is taking up a lot of Elaine’s brain space. It’s taking up a lot of mine too, girl.
But seriously though, there really are few things in life better than snacks, a chilled bottle of rosé and nowhere else to be. Speaking of the pink stuff, may I remind you of a favorite of mine this summer? Too bad, I think I just did. And in my spare time, you might also find me drinking any one of these with great flair and speed.
Moral of the (illustrated) story: treat yourself. Go on an adventure and get lost. You deserve it! But bring snacks and wine, for what would life’s moments be without such necessities. It would be pointless! I’m only sort of kidding.
