"Loaded" by Yevonne Reynolds

The Representational Art League prepared for their exhibit at Moonstone Crossing Winery not only from visiting vineyards but also by gathering together to set up still lifes related to wine, resulting in a fun day of painting and camaraderie. For other sources, they used family and friends' photos of Mendocino wine country.

"Tulips and Wine" by Pat Cahill

The Representational Art League exhibit at Moonstone Crossing Winery has been planned since well before May of this year, giving league members enough time to visit wineries, paint "en plein air" and shoot reference photos. One such July visit was to the Winnett Winery in Willow Creek, home and vineyard of Sharon and Dave Winnett. Timed with the blooming of lavender and roses amid the vineyard, ripe pickings from overloaded cherry trees and a cool visit to the barrel room, the members had much inspiration to capture.

"Night Harvest" by Sara Starr

The Representational Art League will be showing all new work at Moonstone Crossing Winery in Trinidad starting Saturday Oct. 1 and running through Dec. 29, 2011. For this three-month show, the league decided to paint the romance of all things related to wine.
