Poppies and Wildflowers

This is a photo of me and out girls in front of the oldest part of the estate. It used to be stables about 500 years ago, but is now the wine tasting room. Look at that old olive tree to my right. Beautiful. They have a big olive grove here to and make fantastic olive oils and spreads. We were talking about how we wished we could stay longer. What fun.

Title: Poppies and Wildflowers
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas
I stepped up the color using bright greens and complimentary cad reds with palette knife in this Italy inspired oil. The color of this painting is remarkable in person. With my traditionally heavy oils, the textural feel of the landscape makes the place come to life.
The vineyard Musella was absolutely was the wine. The landscape was directly out of a Monet painting and I couldn't wait to paint this piece.
