Quixote Winery - Napa Part 2 - June 27, 2010

This was the second day of painting in the Napa Valley - this time with the North Bay Plein Air Painters at Quixote Winery along Silverado Trail.

Tours of the Winery are available by appointment only.
I stationed myself in this little alcove (above) near the vat room.
The winery was kind enough to allow us access to water and facilities while we were there.
The grounds have interesting old oak trees and wonderfully whimsical buildings.
It was a really hot day (90+degrees in the shade) and I was motivated to get the quirky buildings on paper!

Pineridge Winery - Napa Part 1 - June 26, 2010

It was a non-stop painting weekend for me at the end of June.

It was good to get back outside after all the

weeks of classes earlier this year!

I have been coming here on and off (taking photographs and enjoying the views). Recently, the East Bay Plein Air Painters agreed to put this venue on their paint-out schedule. Many thanks to the staff at Pineridge Winery (especially Jeff Butler) who extended their hospitality to the EBPAP!

Saturday's weather couldn't be nicer - the fog burned off about 10 AM and the sun came out to stay. It was a big group of painters who attended and the works of art produced that day were stupendous!
