Vineyard's Edge

4"x6" oil on raymar panel. When driving down the back roads around San Luis Obispo in the fall, you are struck by the fields of beautiful colors that seem to go on forever. If you don't pay close attention, they appear to be flowing fields of flowers, but they are actually vineyards. A vineyards autumn colors are strikingly beautiful and varied – yellows, golds, russets, reds, oranges and a little green left over for good measure. These fields are diabolically dangerous for an artist. I knew a hapless artist (who shall remain nameless), who once almost drove his truck into a drainage ditch gawking at these fields. Don't worry, the truck's fine.
