California Grape Vineyard

This painting shows a grape vineyard typical for California. Some are larger, some are smaller, some are neater, some are secluded. But there are many because of the weather conditions that allow perfect grapes to be grown. The drought is over and water is plentiful so I expect a huge supply of grapes this year. Some will be used to make wonderful wines at the many wine tasting facilities. Be careful you don’t taste too much!!!! Ink and watercolor.

Speaking Of Grapes

Luscious, plump grapes ready for harvest and ready to be plucked from the grape vine for eating. These mature grapes are so sweet and are so easy to eat. And if they are not eaten off the vines by me, maybe they can be used to make some great wine. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Fruit Bowl

A ton of washes with multiple hues form the major color for this still life of fruits in a bowl. The sketch is applied first in pencil. Washes are painted onto the entire painting. Then I use Sharpies to add more definition to complete the image. Ink and watercolor.

Wine Country Mansion

The family mansion sits at the top of the hill in grape growing territory. I did my sketch with black ink and sepia washes. Ink and watercolor.

Grapes 2010

This scene shows the plump, juicy and ripe grapes grown up here in Placer Country. Not only are these fun to draw but these grapes are used to make fabulous wine which I like to sip. This art sale was a first for me in selling so quickly. Friends came by the house to visit, saw it and bought it before I had time to put it into a frame. I normally have everything ready to sell but this was not ready the way I like it. The quick sale was nice, however. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

The Wine Farm

A farm house is buried between the hilly rows of grape vines in this scene I call The Wine Farm. Somewhere on this location there may be a winery or maybe they just sell the grapes for others to process. It is a beautiful location. The only boundries are where the vineyards end. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Juicy Grapes

Healthy grapes show their beauty before the harvest arrives. As we head into September, the grapes in the area are in "prime time" and are very good to eat. While I enjoy eating freshly-picked grapes at this time of the year, I probably like the liquid form of grapes best.

White, cool wines in the summer and a nice red zinfandel in the cooler months are my favorites along with some nice cheese and crackers. I'll bet many of you wine lovers think the same way. Ink and watercolor.

Climbing Vines

When I was growing up, I always liked to snoop in the vineyards at my grandpa's ranch. Even though it was usually hot and dusty, there was some consolation in sitting in the shade of the grape vines and nibbling away at the juicy grapes. The neat thing about grapes is that the lush fruits are hidden under the full leaves which makes finding a clump of grapes very exciting.

I love vineyards and soon I hope to do some paintings from some local grape farms. Don't you wish you could sit under a nice grape vine right now and sink your teeth into some plump, sweet grapes? I do! Ink and watercolor.
