Friday, the 13th is considered a superstitious or unlucky day. Well, the Moonlight Angels proved that theory wrong. They held their 2nd Wine and Paint fundraiser at 2Plank Vineyards in Vista. 37 wine sippers and talented painters gathered for a fun filled evening. The Angels brought a variety of appetizers for the guests to enjoy, as they sipped their wine tastings and mingled until a voice from behind the bar yelled out “LAST CALL for our painters!”
Their gracious bar hosts, Lynette Schultz and Dominic poured their favorite wines into glasses, going off the normal tasting chart. Lynette, who is the new manager for 2Plank Vineyards even has a talent for guessing what your favorite kind of wine is and mysteriously has that bottle in hand ready to pour.
As the Angels painted, Dominic walked through the room taking orders, to the delight of the group. And they thought the sipping was over.
Janet Dunn was once again, the art instructor. Her talent for teaching “us rookies” is amazing and said her younger students are much more critical than us older students. Her helper this year was Barbara Meech who walked around the room handing out extra paper towels, freshening water, throwing out helpful painting suggestions and squirting more paint on to our color palettes.
A poster on the wall had a saying: “Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them. So go out and start creating!” How’s that not make Friday the 13th a very lucky evening for all of us who gathered for Wine Sips & Brush Strokes.
