So Long And Thanks For All The Grapes
Painting - Mixed Media On Canvas
'So Long and Thanks for all the Grapes...'
Gentle slopes, home to 90 year old vineyards, gentle slopes protected behind re-enforced fences...
Newly installed, gold-flecked, red mylar strips keep the birds away and hold the deer at bay...
The grapes were safe..., or so they thought.
No one though of the butterflies...what would could they possibly do?
Ah indeed, what could they really do?
The African-Swallow, the world's second largest butterfly with a 12 inch wingspan...
Silent power on wings larger than most birds found in the wine country....
Where they came from and where they went, no one knows.
But with high-tech mylar, secured under the dorsal guiding wing section, to facilitate grape removal...
The butterflies rise up into the skies, their wings beating out these words on the winds beneath their wings...
"...So Long and Thanks For all The Grapes..."
