Wine and Craft Festival

This Saturday I went to the Virginia Wine and Craft Festival in Front Royal, Virginia. In addition to the wineries giving out samples of their wines, there were vendors of food, craft items, local art, and jewelry. The weather was brilliant and clear, making the mountains of Front Royal and the Shenandoah Valley look like a matte painting. I consumed much wine along with festival food. My personal favorite among the vineyards was the Davis Valley Winery. Every wine of theirs I tasted was good, even the reds. Wine snobs may look down on Virginia wines, but there is much to like here in the Old Dominion.

This drawing was done from behind a vendor's canopy, and it shows the gazebo in the center of town where a band was playing. Some art is on the vendor's display, including a painting of a sunflower.
