Figure Paintings at the Naked Winery

The Naked Winery - Hood River, Oregon - First Friday, November 7, 2008
We took a mini-vacation to Hood River to check out the galleries on First Friday, particularly the Benjamin Benjamin Gallery and Naked Winery next door where my figure works are hanging.
The Naked Winery is a family-owned winery in Wishram, Washington that just opened a wine tasting bar in downtown Hood River. We loved the atmosphere and especially the wine and music. My paintings done in warm and cool brown tones displayed very well against the tuscan-orange toned interior walls of the winery. Everything seemed to have a 'golden' glow.
This all happened because my friend Myah that owns the Benjamin Benjamin Gallery made an arrangement with the winery to display figure paintings (because they match the 'naked' winery theme), and I was the first lucky artist Myah invited to show there! Thanks Myah!

Yes you are a lucky girl! And the work is gorgeous, how well it goes with that interior, it's one of those serendipitous things innit? Basically the Universe made sure that you painted them canvases, and the interior designer decorated so that it could all come together at this particular poiint in time and space (or have I watched The Secret too many times?). Anyways, I hope you sell out and make a bundle. Don't spend it all at once ;-)
