While working in the vineyards of a locally based organic winery, I had a magical opportunity to study the effects of light on the turning leaves and the hues created of vermillion, ochres, deep maroons and purples. The scene reminds me so much of a New England fall. The images on this page are derived from a large painting 122 cms x 60 cms in acrylic and oil on a wood panel primed in gesso.
The images promote a series of labels for medal-winning organic red wines, sent in tens of thousands on bottles all over Europe.
