Medium: Oil on canvas

Notes: One of my favorite time living in the “wine country” is after harvest when the leaves on the grape vines between to turn. With the exception of the liquid amber trees, leaves do not turn here as they do as in other part of the States. There are no hillsides ablaze with rioting reds, oranges and yellows. But we do have that with the leaves on the vines when they begin to display their spectacular fall show of colors.
With this oil I attempted to capture that magic – when it looks like the vineyards are afire with colors.
As with most oils and watercolors I paint, there was no photograph to work from. This was done from the images in my collective memory. I hope you enjoy this oil as much as I did painting it.
