Starting a new gallery relationship is always really exciting and this is especially true for me working with Art Elements being a such a lovely, professional, local gallery. It will be easy to make sure they have new fresh work and driving out to the wine country, taking in the beautiful views can't be bad!
I indulged in a big hamburger and spent a lovely time under a canopy of trees on their patio.
Then we ventured onto some back roads to scout possible painting locations. I'd brought my gear, but in the end, my knee wasn't quite ready for a roadside plein-aire afternoon. So we skipped painting and instead took pictures and stopped at a local fruit stand and got some great plums.
