Rose Study

Rose Study
Oil, 6 x 6

Yesterday, we took a ride into the  Texas Hill Country, just northwest of Austin. We stopped in a local store for the Hahne Winery. The owner delighted us with stories of his family growing up as neighbors of President Lyndon B. Johnson and  how his mother, Tillie, shared a close friendship with LadyBird Johnson. He treated us to a wine tasting and entertained us with stories rich in history, featuring famous people such as Jaqueline Kennedy Onasis and Janis Joplin. Then, as we were leaving with our purchase of several bottles of wine, we were given a small cross created by his 94 year old mother, and a lovely red rose. It was a perfect afternoon.
