WineArt done...

...and done beautifully thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Andrea Revoy, who conceived the idea and encouraged local artists to join in the fun.

I love it that Alison dressed to match her head, titled The Grim Reaper Hits the Road.

One of my favourites was this one by Alison Masters,

I particularly enjoyed the write-up that came with it, which says:

'Just a little reminder that a Styrofoam head
can be anything, even 'in love'.  Painter Alison
Masters was going to wear these shoes tonight but
painted them instead. She is back at Masterworks
Studio painting her ball gown.'

Another big hit for me was Day of the Dead, by Andrea Revoy.

It amused me that of the thirteen heads, two of them had to do with death...are we artists that forward thinking?  

This piece by Tamara Movold really struck me,

as did Bart Bjorkman's Deep Dweller, made of concrete.

 I was delighted that the bidder who purchased my piece was a family member, so I can visit it occasionally.  I noticed the gentleman they outbid was not so pleased, however!  :D

All in all, it was an exceptional evening with wonderful wines, lovely decor, fabulous appetizers and terrific additional artwork by Carol Schloss and Eileen Hirota.  It was great fun to catch up with family and friends in such a setting.

Congratulations to you, Andrea Revoy, for your stellar job raising over $1200 for the Creston Valley Rotary ...well done!
