This is the painting (watercolor) that my husband loved when he saw it. Both of us love vineyards, and old barns. He told me, “this is a painting I can appreciate.” After he told me how much he liked it, I tracked down John, and I met him over at “studio in the Park”. We talked about some of his other wonderful pieces too. I purchased several of the pieces, along with this one of the vineyard.
It is one of those paintings that puts a person at ease by the sight. This is the kind of winter we have. No snow, but the vines are dormant, and some of the tress still display some green and colored foliage. The mountains in the background look like the black mountains of Santa margarita, but could be many other places too.
