Road and 3 Trees, Palouse, on display at the winery.
Last Thursday my husband and I made the beautiful drive diagonally across the state to Walla Walla with 18 paintings to hang at Syzygy Wines. The weather was perfect and of course I spent a fair amount of time thinking about my next ten or so paintings.
Syzygy Wines is at the airport where Walla Walla has established an economic incubator for the wine industry. It's a fantastic area, with small buildings converted into wineries. I loved it. As you can see the space was perfect for my art! The walls are hand painted and are a warm orange color. As Zach said: it's a good thing my paintings have frames, otherwise they'd look like part of the wall. So true. Clearly my work was destined for an orange wall.
Also, as you can see in the middle painting, there's a blank wall down the hallway. Can't have that, so I'm working as fast as I can on more paintings to hang at Szygy.
P.S.: the 2006 Syrah. If you can get your hands on that, get it. How to get your hands on it? Well for starters, the Artists Reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 10th, at the winery. Join us! Buy wine AND art.
