Bittersweet is a twining vine that grew along the railroad tracks near my house growing up. Mom used to make beautiful vibrant bittersweet bouquets seasonally. I have always loved this berry for the memories it holds, for the fun shape of the vine and for the awesome orange/red color. 
The Panhandle Alliance for Education [PAFE] hold a Summer Gala and art auction once a year to raise money for education in the Sandpoint area. This is my donated piece this year. It is a 24" X 24" acrylic painting on stretched canvas. Let's hope it helps to raise money for some books and supplies for the kiddos this year.
