Painting in Film

Essentially, my patrons choose their favorite wine and we join each other for a vineyard tour. Later, I return and capture the colors of the terroir in oils on canvas with a dozen or more field studies painted in and of the vineyard. Week-by-week my patrons witness the creative process by way of a dedicated online diary at They choose one of the field studies from the series and I reinterpret it on a larger canvas, sized to their liking. I deliver the finished painting with a beautiful signed storyboard chronicling the artful experience. This way they can revisit inspired memories. My advisory board and I realized that this is a lot to explain.  I knew I needed a creative solution. So I reached out to my good friend Paul Maurby at Vintank and he introduced me to a local award winning film making talent, Bret Lyman. Bret has arrived back in his hometown of Napa with his family after time spent in NYC and Los Angeles. Bret’s agreed to paint my Experience of Art & Wine in film as I create his painting.  I’m really excited to work with Bret. His composition is strikingly familiar. It's very similar to mine!  And he understands light as color.  That’s very important, this is the subject of my artistic attention. I’m happy to have creative company that can paint in film and sound, paint what I can only start to explain in words.  You know what they say; “talking about music is dancing about architecture.”
