This week found me meandering around the hills and valleys close to home. This is the perfect time to capture the glorious color that is beginning to appear in local vineyards. It is also the time vintners call the fall crush, the harvesting of the grapes. Some fields are ablaze with autumnal red and golden colors, others are hanging onto the greens of summer. In short order the vines will be bare. But for now, the views reinforce my love affair with fall. Definitely had to paint this.

    You’ve captured some gorgeous color there – and wonderful textures too – I really like the wind ruffled feeling.
