As you see, I added more sunshine and blue sky to this painting, plus a few more leaves to the trees on the right. It is named after the winery where it was created and is available at Daily Paintworks

ANCIENT HILL is a lovely winery set above the rolling hills of the Okanagan. It is owned and run by the Kamphuys family who have steadily built the business over the last 24 years. They are a vital part of the community, supporting many charities, artists etc. and neighbours are constantly dropping by for a chat and to pick up some delicious wine for dinner. It's a very pleasant place to spend the afternoon.

Yesterday I was invited to paint at Ancient Hill Winery during the CARRS LANDING STUDIO TOUR. The winery is on the very edge of the tour and few arty types dropped by, but nevertheless the winery was bubbling with tasters and visitors enjoying the lovely covered picnic patio overlooking the valley.

The CARRS LANDING STUDIO TOUR spans two weekends, so I will be painting there again next weekend and hopefully I can round up a few more artist friends to accompany me, so drop on by with your picnic basket and enjoy this gorgeous location. The tour is both Saturday and Sunday and on Saturday afternoon a couple of musicians will be entertaining visitors.

Some of my paintings are on display for the intervening week, so feel free to drop by during the week between 9:30am and 5:30pm. These are my paintings on view.
