CREATIVITY

LA MEETS SAN FRANCISCO IN PASO ROBLES
A few of our merry band gathered last night for a
moon lit drive over the mountain to Paso Robles for an evening of art and dinning.
Vale Fine Art, a modern gallery, presented
"A Little Nightmare before Christmas"
featuring the remarkable works of Edward Walton Wilcox and Lee Harvey Roswell.  Wilcox, originally from Florida and more recently from LA and Roswell, from San Francisco,
combined to make an inspired show.
Owner and curator Madeline Vale has created an
engaging and dynamic new contribution to
Paso's growing sophistication.
Cypher Winery provided the "liquid art."
It was indeed a bit of LA and bit of San Francisco
mixed nicely with the Central Coast.
More about Madeline Vale and her Gallery here.
By quirk of fate the PierceModern gallery is next door
and the Il Cortile restaurant is across the street.
Our dinner was also a work of art.
We then cruised  Vine street, past the Victorian style homes and others festooned with Christmas lights.
As we drove back over the mountain the bright moon
and sparkling lights of Cayucos and Morro Bay below us on the coast added their creative illumination to the 
Christmas lights we saw dotted on mountain side
ranches and wine villas. Our own quiet village
beckoned through the December dark as hillside
lights twinkled into view. A nice evening out.
If you are in the area, we recommend both the Vale Fine Art, PeirceModern gallery and certainly a meal at Il Cortile.

HOME MADE INGENUITY
 Daughter Katherine gathered local material
and created a couple of center pieces.
Nothing artificial here at all.

See you down the trail.
