"Wine Country" oil on masonite 6x6" SOLD
Ross and I recently took our first trip to Walla Walla, Washington to go on a "wine tour" with the wine group we meet with. We have the least knowledge in the group so we some times would get distracted with other things. For instance, almost all the wineries have Venetian plaster work somewhere in their interiors. The first place I saw it I ended up in a full body rub of the wall. It was so cold and smooth! and an amazing visual effect. Then there was the view some of the property afforded! all those plants forced into strict formation just put your eyes into overload.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
