Jewels Of The Vine
Painting - Acrylic On Gallery Wrap Canvas
Once I sketched in the leaves and played with the structure of the cluster of grapes, then it was all about filling them in with sumptuous color. It was tricky to get them to read as one united cluster with all the different colors, but I managed to tie the composition together by keeping the warm colors near the top of the cluster and then gradually introducing cooler colors as I came down the cluster. The hints of the reds reflecting into the blues and greens is what held them together. I had no idea what to name the painting until it was completed. The gloriously colored grapes reminded me of jewel-like Christmas tree ornaments, but in keeping with the wine theme, I settled on Jewels of the Wine as the title. The painting got rave reviews at the local Wine Festival. The original was purchased by Seven Feathers Hotel and Casino Resort in Canyonville, OR.
