I live north west of California's glorious wine country and have no lack of inspiration as I go to and fro throughout Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. It's anyone's guess why I leave the country to look for more things to paint since there is ample beauty right under my nose, but I guess I inherited wanderlust from my Dad! This particular property is north of Geyserville and is the home ranch for Seghesio wines. I drive by it often and never tire of the way the gracious Victorian is 'dressed' for each season. Today she is decked out in red which is perfect for the week of Valentine's day eh?
