Reflections On a Vineyard

Pin It
"Reflections on a Vineyard"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200 with display easel.
This was a very fun painting to paint. I am enjoying the different subject matter and I had a lot of fun with the colors in this one. This is a great late day scene in one of my favorite places in the world, the wine country!
Today was one of those surreal days ... so many good things happened that it just made today a really great day. Empty Easel published a great article about our Artists Helping Artists radio show and Fine Art Studio mentioned the show in their daily newsletter. Clint Watson confirmed as a guest on our radio show in September and needless to say, our "hits" on the AHA blog were up 500%. Cool.
But the best thing that happened was a set decorator from a very popular TV show purchased one of my paintings today. It was purchased to be featured on the set of the show. I can't give out any details yet but I am very excited! Yippee!

Really like this Leslie! You inspire one to try the palette knife. By the way, try as I may, I cannot connect with your Blog Talk Radio. Is it only accessible in the United States?
