Golden Splendor

Golden Splendor

I have really been into skies lately. It is exciting to see the way clouds move and change.  Golden Splendor was actually completed over the summer and I am now finally posting it. I really enjoyed painting the brillance of the setting sun on the water as it dipped behind the islands.

Art In the Vineyard 2014

View from the Bench

Last month was my annual Art in the Vineyard workshop in Naramata, BC.  I taught with the talented watercolorist, Sam Boehner for four wonderful days of plein air painting among the vines, still life painting all things wine, and all while enjoying a fabulous culinary experience at every meal. 
We had a great group of artists join us among the vines each day. The weather was mostly pleasant and the company was delightful. We had the opportunity to paint in 3 different vineyards over the 4 days. The first two were at Bench 1775 looking at the great view. Then we spent a day at Hillside Winery among their beautiful gardens (and enjoying the best dessert ever!). And finally we visited Serendipity Winery
Below are some photos from the event.

House Among the Vines

The view from Bench 1775 who is now carrying my paintings on their wall. Yay!
