First THEME Division Entry is in! Meet Artist Ann Nall

Our First 2018 Theme Division Entry is in!  

Thank you Ann Nall who was also the 2017 Theme Division Winner. 

This 2017 season, Ann generously donated her winning painting to the Non-Profit Ironstone Concourse Foundation.  The Concourse d'Elegance is one of the premier Classic Car Shows in Northern California as well as a major fundraiser for the California FFA & 4H scholarship funds.
Kudos Ann...

And now,

Ann Nall

Ann started painting in 1985 as a way to escape the pressures of work.  On retirement her art became her focus and her career.

Painting primarily in watercolor, she has specialized in animal portraits, but recently moved to the abstract form.

She has exhibited in juried shows throughout the country.  Ann says her art gives her life energy, focus and a sense of well-being.  It is a gift she does not take for granted.

First tree in!

This little tree came in to our email today.  One of the Craft Trees decorated by one of our customers.

If you have purchased one of these unfinished trees from us here in the Museum, we would love to see what you have done with them!  Send in your photos so we can share.

DIY Christmas Tree Fun

We have several crafty Do It Yourself Christmas Trees here in the Museum for $5.00 that you can decorate then post a photo of your tree on Ironstone's facebook page or post here for all to see how outlandishly talented you are.  Lets have some fun!

The tree trunks are made of large cinnamon sticks set in a plaster base surrounded by either twigs from Ironstone's Reserve Chardonnay cuttings or smaller cinnamon sticks.  If you need a little inspiration, there is one tree done up as a sample.  And we know you can do better than that one!  Call it a quicky....  Lets see what you can do.
