For five generations, our family has been farming the land just north of the Cosumnes River along Highway 99 in Elk Grove where sustainability is not just something we talk about - it’s a way of life. The beautiful McConnell house, built over 100 years ago, is now a bustling winery and tasting room where you can come to taste our estate grown and produced wines, sing along at a summer outdoor concert, or sit back and relax in the warm valley sun while tasting our locally produced wines.
A little bit about me, Colleen, that's me, I am Classy, Sassy and a little bit Smart Assy. I am a self taught artist who is passionate about my art. My journey in the art world started when I was a child. I began painting the rocks from my backyard and bottle caps from the local gas station vending machines. OOOH, did I just date myself? I have been painting decorative art for over 30 years, I'll paint anything and everything that will sit still and even some who can't. I've painted all kinds of things, face painting, murals, glass, wood, canvas, my most recent accomplishment was a 2 day course that I am the author and creator of ;Everything you ever wanted to know about fabric painting. Thirteen years ago I decided to share my passion with anyone who would put a paintbrush in their hand and give it a try. Teaching painting is such fun and so rewarding. I am a Master Instuctor for One Stroke painting, I am also certified Instructor for Grumbacher Arts. In my spare time I am a Drawing Coach and I work with school age children in an afterschool program teaching the fundamentals of drawing. Paint Nite is a great match for me because teaching children at the end of a school day prepares me to be an expert at instructing drinking adults at night. Everyone is an artist, Paint Nite brings out that in all of us, and who knew that while having fun and Drinking Creatively, you can create a masterpiece of your own. Thanks for dropping in and getting to know me.
