6"x6" oil on board. After seeing those lovely grapes and eating them too I was inspired to paint a little vineyard painting this morning. Many vineyards here and so many in Paso Robles, it is beautiful when they are blooming and leafing out, sometimes as far as the eye can see!

My friends, Sharon and Carol live just up the street a little ways. Yesterday they popped by with these beautiful green grapes!! I didn't know whether to paint them or eat them!! I say both! They are just so sweet,( the girls and the grapes)! They have a beautiful garden, figs, red grapes and green and tomatoes, along with beautiful flowers! They have peaches and something exotic that is half of something else.Sadly the birds eat them before they can harvest! The gentleman behind me grows tomatoes too and is so generous with his bounty,
I am so fortunate to have such wonderful generous friends!! Grapes and figs right from the vines and tomatoes just picked, delicious! Thanks friends!!
