One of my granddaughters friends has a farm and recently invited us to come over and see his wonderful garden. In the back there were some grapes growing on a vine and he picked a bunch for me to bring home so I could use them in a painting. The leaf had been ripped and some of the edges had turned brown - more character as a subject. The pottery is a piece I picked up a while back. It seemed the perfect choice for the grapes to "pose" against. The base is the antique oak library file cabinet I picked up in Round Top this year - proving to be one of my favorite wood bases to "pose" my subjects on.
Water to Wine is painted on a 9x12 oil primed linen covered baltic birch
panel and I plan to float frame it to add still another touch of drama.
