Napa Valley Puzzle Map

One of my latest ventures: A 200 piece puzzle
depicting a map of the Napa Valley, ( where I live ),
which includes the appellations, ( different wine growing
regions ), in our valley as well as a few key points of interest.
If you have an interest, they make great gifts at under $20.00.
They come in a plastic wine bottle-shaped container which opens
at the bottom. They will soon be available on my ETSY store.

the Black Box

This graphic was done on my vehicle with the new toy I got from my wife and daughter for Christmas: a new pen and pad to be able to 'draw' on the computer instead of struggling for control with the mouse as I have had to do previously.
As of now it is only on a photo of my "Black Box". Wife says she likes it but isn't sure I should actually put it on my ride. Where's the spontaneity...where's the adventure...where's that risk-taking wild gal I married??? If she can 'run with scissors' surely she can't object to a little graffiti on my artmobile!
