Saturday in St. Helena

One of the benefits of living so close to the wine country is having more frequent visits from dear friends. Saturday began at breakfast with Lisa and Victor. We ate at the Silverado in Napa. When Victor left for golf, Lisa and her friend Claudia watched while I painted this autumn vineyard scene. The weather was perfect and they had some inquisitive questions during those two hours together. Then, we enjoyed shopping in St. Helena which has several boutique and specialty stores. Having worked up an appetite, we ate an amazing meal at Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen. I'm already planning a return trip for their Oysters Bingo with cheese, garlic and spinach.

  1. Brent,
    What a wonderful blog spot you have! I have just joined and will try to keep up with you when work doesn't interfere.

    The painting you did with Lisa is wonderful (as usual)! Can't wait to see it up close and personal.

    It was really great of you to include Lisa (and Claudia) on your painting "adventure" in St. Helena. Lisa has been talking about how amazing the experience was since she got back.

    We both really enjoy the painting you did with your class of the three sailing boats.

    I am going to check out your blog archive when time permits.

    Have a great day and week!

    Say hello to Steve for us.
