Grape Study 3

This is the last grape study. By the time I got back from our road trip the birds had eaten all that were left. All that was left were vines with little bare stumps where grapes used to be. :(
So much for that. 

Next year I will spend some time photographing my grapes for future paintings. They were truly unique to me in color.

This is the second grape painting I did. I added the apples for a little variety and saturated color.

Washington State experienced a drought this year. We had a beautiful winter, or so we thought, with many days of clear skies and far less rain than usual - followed by a hot, dry summer. I enjoyed the change frankly. And so did my grapes. I had a bumper crop and they were delish!

I cant tell you what kind of grapes I put in so many years ago but they are mostly reddish and very sweet!
