Inspired by Fall Grapes
To say that I have been inspired by grapes would be an understatement these days .... This is my fourth grape painting, and I'm working on another, I have one left to post and I have posted how many this season? LOL Ok, I'll just call it a 'series' -- much like Monet's water lilies ... well, ok, obsession --- that will work too! LOL
Jodi and I enjoyed a good morning and delicious lunch yesterday, though I have to admit my painting(s) didn't work out well and I plan to paint again a special cluster of flowers that I was asked to do for the Arboretum ... I hate those times when the water and paint just won't 'flow' .... but I'll play a bit with other subjects and eventually ease into that flower painting when the muse decides to pay a longer visit.
No rain still .... so we'll be back watering the garden and fruit trees. I also plan a 'drive and snap' few hours. The sky has been absolutely stupendous with the most amazing cloud formations, and yep, hay is in the fields, as well as all manner of fall wildflowers. Our landscapes are still in the 'turning' stage, but here and there I spot a flame of color in two or three trees (again early coloring and leaf drop because of the drought), and so I'd like to snap a few photos before those leaves leave those trees bare.
All and all, it should be a relaxing day -- hope yours is too!
