Reception Photos

Just wanted to share some photos from this past Friday night.  We hosted an art reception for local painter, Jane Bowness.  What a fun night!  Thank you to all who came out to the winery that night!

Here are a few of her pieces:

I’m so impressed with her paintings!  She told me before the reception started that she loves to run and finds inspiration while she runs the country roads of Missouri.  I just think that feel of movement really shows up in her paintings!

In the next photo, a couple of guests Friday night discuss what they think about her paintings:

And Jane talking with a few of the guests:

And of course, Clyde and I had fun talking with everyone and serving up a few samples too!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to the reception.  We hope you had as much fun as we did.  Cheers!

Future Possibilities

We are lucky to have some great neighbors here on Hwy T in Steelville.  One couple operates a group of guest cabins across the street that you might have noticed when you drive to the winery.  Murphy’s Place cabins have some spectacular views and we highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get away for a while.

Well, the lady that runs Murphy’s Place, Crystal, is an avid horsewoman too.  She’s slowly been building a – I don’t even know what you call it – herd? – of horses so that she can offer trail rides for cabin guests.  Last year she bought a horse named Mac and has been working with him in the hopes of doing carriage rides to the winery.

This weekend, Crystal had a friend who let her try out Mac on the friend’s carriage.  For more on Mac’s trial run, click on over to Murphy’s Place Blog.

We’re looking forward to seeing Mac out here at Peaceful Bend someday!  Cheers!
