My family on my Mom’s side is from the Napa Valley area of California. I was raised in Santa Maria, and we used to take day trips all the time when I was a kid. We had a pink Edsel that took us anywhere we wanted to go. This is a ridge in the Napa Valley area that caught my attention because I thought it looked like a smile, a row of teeth. But mostly I enjoyed being outside in the sunny day painting a beautiful part of my favorite state.
