Happy Spring, everyone in the northern hemisphere! And happy Persian New Year (NoRuz) for my Persian and Central Asian friends. My wine companions and I celebrated 21 March with a visit to Chester Gap Cellars, yet another high-quality Northern Virginia vineyard and winery. The view from the wine deck was spectacular. Weather and light conditions were ideal as I did this page. At times I was surrounded by fellow sippers looking on as I did the art. Now here's something amazing. One wine-loving guy brought out a copy of my "Earthly Paradise" wine book, that he had bought just an hour or two ago at Winding Road Cellars. My wine book is getting popular! I hope that this page I just drew will go into my next wine art book.
"Chester Gap Cellars" is colored pencil and sepia ink on sketchbook page, 8" x 10", March 21, 2015. Some enhancement of blue colors with Photoshop.
