On the Vine is my newest winery painting. It may be purchased by contacting me. $195 plus shipping.

My biggest challenge with these vineyard paintings are not the grapes, but the leaves. Green is always a very difficult colour to work with, but in this case it's not the colour, but the sense of life and dappled sunlight that I'm trying to convey. I've been working on two other vine paintings, but I needed a fresh start, so I chose an inspiration photo with a horizontal aspect and proceeded with gusto.

I'm quite pleased with this painting and I think it is captivating enough endure the jury process for some upcoming submissions.
