Art Sandwiched In Sonoma and Napa Valley

The concept of art appreciation during the week is a wonderful idea to reignite in a Leisure Lifestyle. Why not swing through an inspiring gallery or two, after enjoying a simple lunch on a weekday? Not too many people, and pure delight! Here are a few favorite galleries and small museums, plus wonderful nearby lunch spots, from St Helena to Palo Alto. Who knows, creativity is the beginning of most things, and maybe something will sparkle mid afternoon on an otherwise normal day. That would be the art of leisure!
