Lovely! And, a welcome sight to me on a rather dreary Fall day.

I like your style and colours it definitely provokes a mood of the sunny vineyard- not sure if i am allowed to here but 1 minor point for me is the road leads my eye out to the left away from the building and picture i wonder how it would look if at the top of the hill the road wound to the right towards or past the building? but then im a complete novice so all im going on is how the painting makes me feel.

not your usual type of scene, I like the colors but the crisp horizon line is distracting

Thanks so much Tracey. I like doing these little paintings. They are just plain fun.

Hi Linda! Saw this and had to comment. :-) I think the BEST part about this is the contrast between the vines and the sun drenched earth they are growing in. I like this painting. Nice work.

Ditto Pearl's comment.
I participated in a wine-tasting tour in Bacarach, Germany this past summer that began in the vineyard and ended in the cellar. I asked the grower (vinter?) why all the rows of vines ran vertical rather than across the hills. What about erosion?
The answer is that the feet of the vines get more sun if the rows are vertical rather than horizontal. Further, soil that collects at the bottom of each terrace is carried back to the top of the terrace so that it can be "recycled." Apparently they don't get the gully-washers that we get in Texas.
When I saw this painting I was immediately transported back to that experience. :wave:

Thank you very much Texan and Pearl.
That is really interesting information Texan. I always wondered about that too.
