Head for the Hills, 6 x 6
This is a scene I've been afraid to paint, and I think I know why! It's a place that's new and very important to me--a view from the deck of Weisinger's Winery in Ashland, Oregon. Last summer my mom married a childhood best friend, John Weisinger, and this is the view from his winery's deck (or my 5 am attempt at translating the view). I've been once, and hope to return many times, as it is one of the most relaxing, delightful places I've been, and to sit on the deck and enjoy a glass of wine with mom and John is one of my life's very treasured moments. I hope to attempt more from this location, perhaps when I'm there in August for a bit I'll paint from the deck, rather than from a photo--even photos don't do it justice.
