|Check out Chris Tymoshuk's art on one of my first labels.|
Wine label collecting, what a fun hobby to be caught up in. Our labels are all about promoting Local Art and Artists here in the area of East Multnomah county. Since I was a child, I've had a great love for the simple beauty of art that comes from the heart. And I must say I've always had an eye for it. I remember, when the state and county fairs would come to town. It wasn't the crazy rides or the games that I took interest in, but instead I loved to go check out the art, that the locals would create straight from the heart.
I have collected some wonderful art from artists such as Chris Tymoshuk, my buddy who helped me first appreciate cool art on labels. I enjoy taking walks in the beautiful area with live in and painting with Chris. Come see her wonderful art during Troutdale's First Friday, February 6, 2015 from 5-9pm. She, Rip Caswell, Loree Harrell, Matt Eaton and a few other artists work together down at the Troutdale Art Center. 903 E. Historic Columbia River Highway in Troutdale. I will be joining them this month with some of my wines.
(Chris does much art, currently lanterns, paintings, and mixed media. You can also find her art on display at Stomping Grounds Coffee Shop in Fairview).
I love to support local and this is the way that works best for me, something I love so much.
