Sous La Tonelle I
(Under the Arbor)

12" x 12" x 1-3/8" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas
It's funny how some paintings brew in your mind or subconscious for a while, perhaps years, and then something occurs, a trigger of some sort, where it all comes together and ends up on canvas. This painting was inspired by photos I took a few years ago of my brother Joe's grape arbor, by my parents' love of wine-making, and my desire to bring that all together visually.
