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.

Time For Wine Tasting

 My loose and colorful painting reminds us that it’s always nice to sample wine with friends. Along with the wine, it’s also appropriate to have some crackers, sliced meats and yummy cheese. You may notice that some of my work is very loose (like this one) and very tight like some previous images. I paint the way I feel. It is so nice to be able to paint without many constraints. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Abandoned Structures

Old structures dominate this secluded, very colorful valley. I like the lonesome, isolated feel of this painting. Maybe it is a place I would like to visit to do nothing but relax, eat, sip wine and paint. 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

Italian Countryside

My painting shows a birds eye view of a lush wine country setting somewhere in Italy. The long shadows denote an early morning sunrise before a warm summer day. 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.

Bottled For Wine Lovers Only

I produced this painting over a period of a couple of days with the sole purpose of trying to make it project its vibrant colors. I poured the background and the colors came out great. My wine labels are very generic although many wine bottles have great labels which attract buyers. Sometimes, I will buy a bottle of wine because the label looks nice. Wine expert I am not! Ink and watercolor. SOLD

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

Painting With Wine


In two art classes we have had sessions where we painted with wine. That's correct! Wine! In this case it was a nice red zinfandel. Students were provided templates of the bottle and glasses so they did not worry about the accuracy of drawing the bottle and glasses.Then we layered with wine washes. Other colors were then added.

This makes a very attractive painting although I did need to darken via Photoshop since the wine was not vivid enough. It's a fun class to do and it is always well-attended.

By the way, we drank the wine after while critiquing our work. Ink, wine 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.
