This painting was created in my studio from a photo that I embellished.

Here I tried to capture the last of the glorious fall vineyards in Geyserville, not far from my home. I had to paint fast because nearby workers were pruning the vines while I was painting. This scene is next to Highway 101 and has many utility poles plunked down in the midst of the vineyard.
The chapel at Bishops Ranch, a venue from Monday Morning Painters. This painting is rather stylized, with a full moon in the upper right corner, the mysterious building behind the chapel, the small orchard trees which appear to have been pruned, the leafless trees against the sky, and the grass turned viridian from a recent rain.
