Meeting and working with the wonderful people from the Yountville Arts Committee was a special treat for all of us. They have been working very hard to bring art into the Yountville community with a sculpture walk and this event (and who knows what else in the future?). What a pleasure it was to meet them!
Throughout the three days, we met both local people and people from around the country. I talked with people visiting from Boston, Nahant (near Boston), Brooklyn, and Ohio, as well as a lot of folks from the Bay Area and Napa Valley. Many of them were new to our Open Studios and to our artwork, which made it especially good for us.
Then, to top it off, I sold two paintings (two of my favorites), as well as a number of the small matted reproductions I print on my photo printer. And the clouds actually parted, giving us pretty decent weather Friday night and most of Sunday, in spite of predictions of torrential downpours. All in all, it was a very good time!
