I'm not fond of doing shows in person, but who can turn down an invitation to show in spring, in the heart
of wine country! The drive up the 5 freeway was stunning from the Grapevine onward, only reaching it's climax
in the last hour as we pulled into Paso Robles.
I only wish there had been more time, and more places that were easy to pull over and take pictures, but I did get a sampling of the patchwork of wildflowers that were erupting on the hillsides.
There were many more examples, it doesn't show up as well in the photos as it did in person,
just the most beautiful California wildflower scenery, everyone was talking about it.
Of course there were cows too, happy cows indeed! Just look at this beautiful landscape:
Last stop, after the show was closed, a few winery tours. My favorite winery in Paso Robles, and
our last stop, was Eberle. If you are fond of red wine, don't miss it if you visit the area!
Not only is their wine great, check out the view off their back porch
I hope you enjoyed the photos from my trip to Paso Robles, now I am off to finish this
Jersey calf oil painting. It was being displayed at the art show on an easel with the reference photo, as
a painting in progress so people could see an example of how I work from photographs,
and turned out to be quite the attention grabber and was purchased the first night of the show.
I'll have it finished and shipped to the new owner by early next week.
