Happy Hour

At an art opening few weeks ago I met Beth Lemke, Proprietor of A Grape in the Fog in Pacifica. Thinking it would be great fun to include a glass of wine in my 50-50 show art, and needing a respite from the intense weeks of painting, I strolled in with my camera...

China of a Different Kind
