I shared the process of painting my wine barrel HERE for the Ramona Art & Wine Festival that is November 5th.barrel

I am proud to be in this lineup of talented artists!



Here is the information for the Festival should you wish to join me:

Ramona, Calif., September 21, 2016 – Six Ramona and Poway, Calif. businesses are sponsoring and hosting hand-painted wine barrels to preview the 4th annual Ramona Art and Wine Festival.

These unique wine barrels, painted by area artists, are now on display prior to being auctioned at the 4th annual Ramona Art and Wine Festival to be held at Begent Ranch, 18528 Highland Valley Road, Ramona, Calif., on Saturday, November 5, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are available at http://ramonaartandwinefest.net , including an early bird discounted ticket until October 1 and a new entry-only price.

The colorful, unique barrels depict various mini-murals from Ramona-specific pastoral scenes to distinctive designs and offer a special piece of art to display at home or business.

Interested viewers can check out a one-of-a-kind barrel at the following Ramona and Poway businesses and can place a reserve bid without attending the Festival by calling Festival co-chair, Elaine Lyttleton at (760) 787-1102. A reserve bid means if no one bids higher at the live auction than your “reserve” amount, your credit card will be charged for the actual auction amount.
