Grapes-a symbol of life, immortality, harvest, a time of joy. This is my newest "note from the easel". I chose to paint the palomino grape which is used for making "fino" and "amontillado" (sherry wine). It is not just a white grape, but goes through many color changes as it ripens on the vine.
While on a tour through a vineyard, I spied this beautiful cluster of grapes, with the sun peeking through the leaves. I wanted to share the moment with you. Beautiful, isn't it?

"Isaiah's Scroll"

What could be more about Easter than the celebration of the Resurrection? This small painting is my spiritual tribute to the One whom this season is all about. The prophet Isaiah is known as the "prophet of the messiah" because of several writings which foretold of a coming savior for his people. His was a "celebration of life." This particular scroll is chosen from Isaiah, chapter 53....Happy Easter everyone!
