Happy Holidays

Where does the time go? I can hardly believe that it is December already. And, like the months that preceded it, this one is packed full. We have a lot of beautiful new art for you to enjoy, our son Josh, graduates with his Master's degree from Florida State University, our daughter, Sarah, is coming for a visit and Christmas is only a few weeks away.

The cold and rain have arrived in northern California so I'm cooking up a storm of comfort food whenever I get the chance. Just the other night, I prepared a dozen beef short ribs using among other things, a bottle of Honig Wine Cabernet Sauvignon. Yumm!

More exciting news: We hired a new employee last month who is looking forward to meeting and working with all of you. Christine McMillan is from St Augustine, Florida and recently relocated to Napa with her family. She is proving to be a valuable addition to our team. Together with Shawn and myself we recently completed this year's holiday window display at the gallery. Lots of work and lots of fun. Like the art in the gallery, it is difficult to capture a really good image with a camera, but for those of you who can't make the trip to see the windows in person without the replections, here is a glimpse into our "Vintage Christmas."

I am still struggling to find enough time to post here on a more regular basis, so if I don't get the chance in the next few weeks, (our schedule is packed), I want to wish you and yours a spectacular holiday season filled with joy, laughter, good friends, amazing food & wine, and of course, the finest Romantic Realism.

Happy Holidays My Friends!
