"Grapes All Around", oil, 6 x 6, $85
Today is Day 7 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge that I signed on to be apart of with Leslie Saeta and over 260 other artists.
My theme is: Connecticut Treasures.
Over the past year I've taken so many shots of places, events, people and things all around Connecticut and I'm looking forward to sharing these inspirations with you.
Last summer my husband Dean and I met two of our good friends Jim and Tracey one hot summer evening at a place I had no idea was a) so close to us, practically in our own backyard and b) so divine. Gouviea Vineyards in Wallingford, CT boasts a 360 degree panoramic view of their vineyards, and rolling New England pastures. The Stony House winery offers outdoor patios and picnic tables and indoor tables with wine tasting bars. We brought our own food, enjoyed a taste of several of their popular wines and relaxed out on the patio. Times like this; shared with good friends, family, fabulous food and drink and knowing that by the hands of our Creator these precious moments are the gifts worth treasuring.
