This painting was done by Avia's father sometime in the early to mid 70's.  She remembers growing up with her on the wall, never really knowing who she was.  To this day she remains a mystery and serves as Homage Vineyards muse, enchanting people with her Mona Lisa like expression.  Many people have made their way down the driveway simply to find out "Who's that Lady"? Sadly we will never know but what we have is the unending presence of a Father who left the world too soon.
