Green and Gold

Visiting vineyards in Newberg Oregon last fall…I was stunned by the beauty of the season.  How fulfilling it is to sit in the crisp air with a glass of white wine, a fresh piece of watercolor paper and the joy of catching the shifting light.

Dad and Grandma

After arriving in Oregon, at the end of my journey last fall, I stayed with my Aunt in Newberg  for a few days.  She has many wonderful things at her house up on the hill.  I found these tiny pictures of my dad and grandma propped up on her shelf, and sat in front of a warm stove all day, sipping tea, drawing and watching the fog slowly lift from the green and gold country outside.
