Villas and Verandas

My new favorite place to visit is a gorgeous art gallery right here in San Juan Capistrano, only a few blocks from my house! It is called Villas and Verandas and this lovely gallery features California plein air paintings and also antiques.
Aida Ganddini and her husband Ron Deak own the gallery. Aida is a flamenco dancer and she also specializes in antique Santos - she has an amazing collection of them for sale at the gallery!
Ron Deak is a very talented plein air painter. One of my favorite paintings of his is this nocturne.
If you are in the San Juan area, don't miss visiting Villas and Verandas. This gallery is an oasis of visual delight!
