Internationally-Collected Wine Artist, Leanne Laine, paints "SWEET EMBRACE" shortly after the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. 100% proceeds went towards Relief efforts (50% to the Red Cross, 50% to Savethechildren.org): http://leannelainefineart.com/sweet-e...

"People have told me to post a video of me 'speed-painting' and put it on Youtube or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/leannelainefi.... I've always liked the idea but I admit that I'm really camera-shy and when I paint, I really prefer to be in my own space alone. Then disaster struck in Japan on Friday, March 11th. That day seriously affected me that I've been hugging my children and husband way more ever since. So I put myself out there and created this video to raise funds.

COMPASSION makes the world go around, we just need to keep it fresh. As a "wine enthusiast and avid wine painter", with this painting titled "SWEET EMBRACE", there is nothing but goodness and love that goes into the making of wine. Given all that is happening in our world, either natural disasters or tyranny in the Middle East, which all seem to be coinciding, the world needs to be embraced, held and appreciated with the love, life and goodness... like that of wine. I really, REALLY appreciate all of you for all of your support for circulating this video to keep the compassion and strength alive for victims of natural disasters. Thank you also to Linda Monette, the new owner of "SWEET EMBRACE" who won the auction and will be hanging this painting at her family-owned restaurant, Flagstaff House Restaurant, in Boulder, CO. Many of the Japanese and their dignitaries visit this restaurant and the painting would hang in their honour. xo, Leanne"
