Toast to Bill Weber on his accomplished mural for Brentwood's Trilogy At The Vineyards

12"x6" oil on gallery wrapped canvas. Painting can be purchased from: from the artist, Jenny Floravita

Before I go into details about Bill Weber's mural for Trilogy At The Vineyard in Brentwood I'd like to apologize for not having the title for the above Mini Master painting. It sold at my last festival and this is one of two paintings for which I have misplaced the title. The location is the South Shore of Kauai as you enter Poi Pu. I just love this red dirt road and I have painted a larger canvas that is similar to this composition and plan to do another painting from this location soon. It's a road into paradise.

And now I would like to raise my coffee cup to Bill Weber, a great muralist and even better friend. This photo shows him standing in front of his newest mural in the opulent Club House for Trilogy At The Vineyards in Brentwood, California. The scene is of Mount Diablo and our surrounding countryside. Bill captured the look of the area beautifully. Oak trees and vineyards surround the gentle rolling hills of our Northern California town, which was once agricultural but is now host to an ever increasing presence of wine enthusiasts.

Barbie Koncher, a well known jewelery and glass artist hosted a lovely lunch to celebrate the official signing of the mural for Bill. In attendance, Ariana (Bill's wife) and budding artist herself, ceramicist Rosie Grejsen, Lily Beatty (the late wife of local artist Ron Beatty) and myself.
