A quiet time to take a few pictures on the last day of the 3 day Art and Wine festival in Cambria this past weekend. What alot of fun!  I was demonstrating the three days in the Chambers Gallery and have one of  the paintings posted here. I just had to paint a vineyard with a crow!
Pam Derby of Derby Wines in Paso Robles poured  her wines  filling Gayle's desk with the best wine selection on the Central Coast ( what a treat) and Vicki Greene ( our wonderful seascape artist) brought fabulous cheese she discovered while in France! Thanks for sharing Vicki!! Julie Whitmore ( potter extraordinaire) added a huge ,beautiful hand painted wine bottle for the occasion and our resident plein aire painter Linda Huggins brought her luscious scones!  I am now the proud owner of one of Linda's landscapes!
Pat Riley ( of Pat Riley's hand painted clothing) made lunch for us the last day and it was fabulous. Our thanks to Shannon McNamara for the beautifully created cheese presentations.  The  wine bottle painting on the back wall  sold along with our wonderful artists work in the excitement and there was a flurry of buying in the gallery! All the artists were there along with their beautiful works and here also is a picture of Gayle Sewell proprietress of the wonderful Chambers Gallery.
If you haven't been to Cambria for the wine festival you have a treat in store next year! All the shops participate and there are dinners and auctions and  artists painting all over town!! Don't miss it next year!!
