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.
I'm Dave and I've been creating art ever since I first drew all over my parent's walls with crayons as a young boy. Since then I have grown and studied art all my life in many parts of the world. My art has evolved from crayons to pencil and paint. I still study, learn and practice my art continually. I currently sell my art in a gallery in Kauai. My weekdays are spent designing bridges. My nights and weekends are when I have fun teaching PaintNite, meeting new painters and sharing the joys of painting. I invite you all to come and paint with me and experience the joys of PaintNite!
