Wine Cellar Mural, the Perfect Balance of Art and Fermentation

Wine Cellar Mural, the perfect balance of art and fermentation

I spent 5 days in this charming wine cellar painting the sky and these grapes in their 4 seasons. The mural begins with a bare stem sporting only a few small new leaves. Turning the corner are some flowering buds that are starting to fruit. The fruit develops into Pino grapes, green with speckles. The grapes show veraison as they change color until the last wall is full of deep purple clusters. These clusters round the room back to the beginning bare vines where the dead brown leaves float to kiss the new growth. This room was enchanting and a real delight to paint.
