The weekend was beautiful, even with the rain. I so enjoyed meeting new people and catching up with old friends during my Museum Show and Barn Open House.
Ernie Delp purchased the original painting Summer’s Hush, which was released as a giclée on paper during our show weekend.
Friday morning I had an interview at The Barn with Bob Corso of WHSV-TV3 in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and Friday evening I attended the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education’s Wine & Hors d’oeuvres Gala at Barren Ridge Vineyards in Fishersville. The fundraiser at Barren Ridge was lovely. The winery sits on top of a hill, with fantastic, panoramic views of the mountains and the vineyards below. Barren Ridge markets two of its bottles of wine with labels that feature my images Tinkling Spring and Harmony. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold benefits the Foundation. In addition to those two wines, attendees were also served Barren Ridge’s Red Barron and Rose. The evening had much to offer, even for those who don’t drink wine. The catering was done by Jenner Brunk of Checkertree Farm in Weyers Cave, Virginia, and the food was out of this world! We also had live and silent auctions, and everyone laughed and had a great time.

Those who came to The Barn for Saturday’s signing at 11:30 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. experienced the gorgeous music of the Academy Chamber Ensemble, participating in the Wintergreen Performing Arts—Music in Unusual Places program. Many thanks to Wintergreen for sharing their program with us and giving us such a special treat.
By the time this reaches you, I will be in Italy. My son-in-law Corrado, my grandson Picco, and I took off Monday to spend a few pre-cruise days with my daughter Becky and her family who live in Cortona. The rest of the family will join us by the weekend, and then we’ll start our Mediterranean cruise Tuesday of next week.
