Waiting For Harvest II

                                Waiting For Harvest II - Colored Pencil On Ampersand Pastelboard

I finally finished the second Waiting For Harvest piece and an addition to my Wine Series.  Again it is the same size as the first one (16 X 12) which was Pinot Grigio grapes from the Castello di Colognoli vineyards in Greve, Italy (which is in Tuscany).  These were Sangiovese grapes to be used for their Chianti wine that the family makes at the castle.  And one of my favorite red wines.  What attracted me to this cluster of grapes was the large knobby vine  and it was so large you knew the age of Tuscany was inside and out.  They were very sweet to eat and I believe were harvested just after we left in late Sept. 2009.

This will probably be the last of my wine series as I begin work on a commission piece for a client, that I will post after Christmas so I don't give away any surprises.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday everyone and have some wine it's good for your Heart!  Red Wine that is.

Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale AZ - Studio Gallery Representation

Hey Everyone,

I'm so excited to mention that I am now a part of the Xanadu Gallery - Studio Artists Gallery, in Scottsdale AZ.  Go  here  if you'd like to see my gallery page.  I'm proud to be accepted by them as J. Jason Horejs, gallery owner has been of great help to me in getting my art career off and running.  He has a wonderful book "Starving to Successful" which has valuable info for artists.  His father and artist himself John Horejs, has been represented by Jason's gallery for many years.

I can't wait to see what happens with this new exposure.

I just finished my Waiting For Harvest II and photos are to be taken soon for updating here.  And I'm starting on a new commission work for a client as a Christmas present.  Lots of prep work and composition work on this one to be done before I put any pencil to paper.  But this may have to wait until after the holidays to post on the blog.  I don't want to ruin the surprise.  How's that for keeping you coming back for more.

Enjoy your day and I'm back to the sketch pad.
