While teaching a portrait workshop at the Headwaters School of Music
and Art, in Bemidji, Minnesota, PBS came and filmed my class (as well as
a music camp) to promote this incredible school. I was a little camera
shy (okay, I was nervous!) but it was a great experience for such a good cause.
This commission was a dream and a joy to paint! It was a surprise gift
to the winery owners (featured) on their anniversary. The family had
secretly and lovingly chosen items that had meaning to them and arranged
them on their special table, included their wine, pottery collection etc., in the midst of their California vineyard. Sigh....
