Winemaker’s Daughter displays works of Benitez, Paug
By Jane Myhra
Paintings by local artists are featured at Winemaker’s Daughter.
Currently displayed is the artwork of Lisa Benitez and Bruce Paug.
A photographer for over 30 years, Benitez began painting about four years ago.
“My paintings look like paintings,” she said. “You can see the brush strokes; you can see the colors at play.”
Her first paintings were portraits of her grandchildren.
“Portraits are my forte,” Benitez said. “I love watching a person come alive on canvas – it’s amazing to me.”
Her birch tree acrylics are also popular.
“I did a birch tree painting for my house and somebody wanted to buy it,” Benitez said. “So that space in my house is still empty, but that is a good problem to have.”
