Ah, vineyards. I love the orderliness of their clean, straight lines that stretch on till you can't see them any more. I love how the vines change color with each of the seasons. I appreciate all the planning and hard work it takes to produce those grapes and the delicious things that come from them. When I was painting this I was also reminded that Jesus said He is the Vine and we are the Branches and if we abide in Him, we'll bear much fruit. So as I reflected on this truth I remembered that no matter what happens in my life (good or bad in my eyes) it's all going to help to produce good fruit when and since I abide in Him.
Here I've painted a large, 24x36 acrylic painting of a vineyard in Napa Valley in the fall. I got my inspiration from a photo of the Castello di Amorosa Vineyard taken by Rick Klau. The original painting is now hanging in Gallery Saratoga for the month of January. If you live in the area come on by to see it!
