Dur­ing her long ca­reer as a pro­fes­sional artist, Joan Met­calf has painted and ex­hib­ited many scenes from the Pa­cific North­west, in­clud­ing forests, gar­dens, moun­tains and coastal paint­ings. Re­cently, her in­spi­ra­tion has come from wine coun­try and she has com­bined the grace­ful im­ages of grapevines with her oil and metal leaf tech­nique. De­scrib­ing this series, she says, “I have ex­plored dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions of com­po­si­tion metal leaf to in­ten­sify its shim­mer­ing ef­fect. These form a back­ground for my im­ages with ever-chang­ing re­flec­tions as you move past the paint­ings.” A col­lec­tion of her grapevine paint­ings will be ex­hib­ited dur­ing Oc­to­ber at Cathe­dral Ridge Win­ery in Hood River, Ore­gon.
