Confluence Winery ~ Artists In The Vineyard | Free Cards Winner

This past weekend I was a part of the Confluence Winery's Artists In The Vineyard event ~ and I loved it. Yes, there were times of quiet, there were several hours of rain, there was cold (I'd forgotten my coat)... and then there was the cat who sprayed my tablecloth right from the get-go :) ~ but I did truly love it.

I strongly feel that the people with whom we spend our time can really influence how we look at the world around us. And so I had a very good time at this event ~ nestled amongst horse fields, grape vines & winding country roads. Thank you to artist Greg Gorham for inviting me.

The owners of the lovely Confluence Winery were kind and thoughtful ~ and I had my friend and fellow artist Susan Williams to chat with at times. The live music drifted throughout, and though the visitors were not always swarming, the ones who came to talk with me in my tent were warm and conversational ~ and interested in the pieces. Several original paintings found new homes this weekend, including From The Same Cloth ~ who will now dwell within the family's home at the Confluence Winery.

it was as if I created this painting just for Jae ~ though we just met on Saturday.

Like Water, Feed My Soul, Remember, Spinning Tales and Taking A Moment on display at the event ~ Spinning Tales, with her textured surface, was a big hit.

Confluence Vineyards & Winery in Ridgefield Washington offers Unique Fine Wines & Exclusive Wine Tasting of the very best wines from the state of Washington.
