New Painting About Terroir

I have been inspired of late by the wine and vineyards of Oregon and have endeavored to produce a series based on terrior.
Here is the latest one. Many of them are on display at Samuel Robert Winery, at Iris Vineyards, and at Pfeiffer Vineyards.

MarshAnne Landing Winery
Tom Bergeron Brasil Band
7:30 PM Saturday July 11
\ Brasil Band 50% 2
It will feel like a summer night in Rio when Tom Bergeron Brasil Band brings an exciting evening of traditional and contemporary sambas, bossa novas, and original tunes.  The sextet consists of master saxophonist Tom Bergeron; singer and native of Rio de Janeiro Rosi Bergeron; pianist Cassio Vianna- also from Rio; guitarist Erik Moulton; bassist Chauncey Jepson; and drummer Cameron Siegal.
Brasil Band plays an eclectic range of Brazilian styles: the virtuosic instrumental choro that was popular in the early 20th Century, the romantic song-samba from the 30's and 40's, the sultry bossa nova, lively contemporary hits, original compostions, and the shake your booty style samba popular today in Rio's trendy Lapa district.  Bergeron's 40+ years of research and performance of Brazilian music promises a great evening from a different time and place!
Admission $30 includes abundant appetizers.  The audience is encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to the concert in order to sample wine, appetizers, and meet and greet other concert goers.
