The Winters Plein Air Festival starts March 25th!

Winters Plein Air Festival: March 25 – April 30, 2011

Local farms throughout our region have invited festival artists to capture the pastoral beauty of the farm. Exploring the variety of colors and textures where an amazing diversity of wines and organic vegetables, herbs, nuts, flowers, and fruits are produced will provide a bountiful harvest for the eye as well as the brush.

Winters Farmer's Mkt

The Market Kitchen (a customized Briggs shed) will open this Sunday at The Winters Farmers Mkt. We will be offering freshly prepared market fare, and sharing recipes to inspire folks to eat more fresh veggies and fruits.

You are invited to come out and paint the sites and scenes of the market, I'll treat you to strawberry shortcake (healthy version!) If any of you would like to paint a live model, just let me know and I will arrange.

Have I been the only one that went into hivernation over the cold, damp months? Though busy with many promised projects, during these winter months, my doors stay… Continue

Paint the town

Along with painting in a very beautiful area, I enjoyed meeting many of the artists and the locals. All in all a good and productive time was had. I'm looking forward to next year already and I haven't even been home a week!

Thanks again for…
