Weekend at Árdíri!

This is the Ardiri Team: Karen, Linda, John, (me), Gail and Justin. They all did a fabulous job putting on a very successful grand opening for Árdíri Winery and Vineyards! It was a very busy weekend.
It was busy for me as well. I sold quite a few minis. Even the mayor of Hillsboro (below) took a painting home for his wife.

I finished up the painting: "Árdíri 2009 Oregon Harvest" during the show, and Gail Lizak, one of my top collectors, added the piece to her personal Vranes art collection. When I say that Gail and John are my two best collectors, it's true! Between the two of them they have more than 60 paintings!
"Árdíri 2009 Oregon Harvest" 24 x 30, thick acrylic on canvas
This is the painting that is featured on the wine label of their newest release, "Chehalem Gold." I brought it to the Grand Opening and John Compagno added it to his art collection. It is one of my favorite vineyard scenes, depicting Árdíri in Autumn.

Inside the Árdíri House are a few of the vineyard paintings I did for John. Above is a series of 24 x 24 paintings: "Summer, Fall, Grapes, Winter, Spring"
