Basilica Sunset has a new home!

February is "For Love of Art Month" was a success! 

Thank you to Patti, Marina and Dave for your purchases during my studio tour event! 

The live music and party on the 17th was a hit. It will be a repeat in the future. In case you missed it, Alison Reynolds played here for 2 hours. In the mean time we had a celebrity bar tender - Deret Roberts from Art Obscura was on hand pouring wine. Barbara Reasoner and Patti Havistad helped me get the food together. Many thanks for helping make the party a success!

Welcome to our new Hacienda Vance website. In 2015 we purchased our new home and retired from raising Galloway cattle and relocated to a warmer climate. No more cows, no more winter!

Officially retired; we love our new home, community & climate!

We have returned to our wine making endeavors. We love to share our wines during parties here at our new home. We have hosted the Christmas Party for the NM Vine & Wine Society twice and Deb had Studio Tours last month. Both events had our wine available to taste and enjoy. We are Amateur Wine Makers - therefore we can not sell wine, so we share instead! 

Debra has taken up Watercolor painting. Joined both the NM Watercolor Society and the Plein Air Painters of NM, Dona Ana Arts Council and ArtForms of NM (host for the studio tours.) It has offered many opportunities to meet lots of new friends in the art world. Please read more about my art endeavors on the Watercolor Art Page.

Dene is enjoying golfing at the Anthony Country Club where we are members. He is looking forward to being more involved there. He is golfing there 2 times a week now!  His golf clubs continue to bust drought conditions where ever we go. It had not rained in Tucson / Green Valley in 119 days. Bingo! Rain. We all know what happened in Yosemite right after we left right? It was all over the news. Historic snow and rain with flooding......
