Bouchon Bakery"Bouchon Bakery" in Nappa Valley, CA oil on canvas 12"X16"
You could say my theme for painting right now is “happy, warm memories” as I put on canvas some of my favorite sights from past travels.
On a trip to Napa Valley several years ago, we happened upon the Bouchon Bakery, just down the street from the French Laundry.
The cases were filled with goodies – eclairs, rainbow layer cakes, and all kinds of bread. While I don’t always start with a sketch, I had time to sketch this delicious scene and then decided it needed to be put on canvas.
Steve says he gets hungry looking at this one. His gigantic sweet tooth makes him a sucker for baked goods.
