I will hold this year's Open Studio at Graeser Winery (255 Petrified Forest Road, Calistoga, California - on the web at www.graeserwinery.com), as I did last year. It's a beautiful place - driving up there is like stepping back in time - and the newly remodeled tasting room and gallery area is a wonderful spot for looking at artwork (and, perhaps, savoring a lovely glass of wine).
My actual studio is about five miles from the winery, in part of a lovely old barn in Franz Valley. I have natural light and a view - I work in heaven. How lucky can I get? It's not set up for visitors (there is no bathroom), but for one working artist, it is a soul-satisfying place to be.
