Looking for Inspiration, Wine Tasting and Painting

Hi, Jacqueline Newbold here.  I want to share with you how I find inspiration for my paintings.

On a recent wine tasting trip to Yamhill Valley, Oregon, I found breathtaking views as the scenery opened up into rolling hills, vineyards and orchards. Our morning was greeted with rising fog as the blue mountains in the distance started to show through.

 The day brought dappled sunlight and warmth. It was fun to slow down and take it all in while savoring some of Oregon's best wines. I even learned how to blend my own Pinot Noir and came home with a bottle with my name on it!
