Abstract Art - August Vines
This painting was done for a Winery. Hence, the title.
I love painting and the joy that my paintings bring. The quote that states, 'Dance as if no one is watching..' is hard to apply to life. I feel that I can apply this to my art.
Inspiration for the Painting Grapes full with flavour.
Vines heavy with their weight.
Purples, reds, merlots, plums, burgundies.
Plump with juices
Ready for wine
Hot sun shining down
Warming the grapes as they grow
About this Painting
I painted this painting for a local winery. They hosted an art show featuring 4 artists, of whom I was one. It was wonderful to meet other local artists and mix and mingle at Little Straw in West Kelowna, BC.
