September Artist Uncorked - Terri Einer

Once again our Great Room is turned into a gallery with the artwork of Terri Einer the month of September!

Buttercup and Bella.jpg

Terri states, "If a piece of my art brings a smile to the viewer, my goal has been reached and I am fulfilled. It is often remarked that I must just be dancing and smiling when I am in my studio. My work is about colors that sing, objects that demand attention or critters that contain whimsical wonder.

My florals are impressionist, with little attention paid to the type of flower represented rather than the play of color combinations. I am happiest in my studio when the colors are bold and I am painting with quick spontaneous strokes."

Stop by the winery and wander through our "gallery". Guaranteed, there will be a smile on your face as you admire Terri's pieces!
