Saint Laurent Crush

"Saint Laurent Crush" 12x12" oil on panel $300.00

Our winery paint-out was fabulosity! 3 of us painted at Saint Laurent Winery on Friday, Oct. 2. What fantastic vistas! Three Lakes golf course lays below the winery. The mighty Columbia river winds around blue and purple cliffs. Friday I worked on a larger piece, 24x24" - of the pond with reeds and cattails - it needs a little more paint!

Then Saturday, during their Fall Crush, 2 of us set up our easels and painted as the guests enjoyed wine, music, and great conversation - learning all about the resident winemaker's secret to fantastic wines - while I painted the syrah grapes above.

Grapes and vines are one of my favorite subjects - I love the design opportunities and the colors are always rich and challenging. This piece is not for sale at this time as I hope it may one day grace a wine bottle as a label! See a detail of the painting below.

Beautiful work as usual Jennifer!

Since I often buy wine based on the label, I know this has great marketing potential. It's destined to hit the bottle market!
