Bill's Delicious Old Fashioned Grapes

I took a photo of a bunch of Bill's grapes on his grapevine that runs about 50 feet along his and his neighbor's fence. The vine is just across the little alley way that my studio is on. From the ref. photo, I did a looser watercolor. Bill's grapes are the old fashioned kind...non- genetically engineered...they have seeds in them for god's sake! It's finally a normal 100 degree plus day today and the grapes are tasting good! By this weekend, it will be in the low 80's and high 70's...weird summer and a late California grape harvest this year.

Non-genetically engineered food? Say it isn't so!! I love it, David. That the fruit is organic and the delightful colors you've pulled from nature. A wonderful piece, truly!

thanks for posting w-i-p pics. I loved seeing how the grapes came into focus :) Most delicious looking colorful grapes, indeed!

the colors, compositions and depth in all of your grape paintings is wonderful. i am sure all of your grape paintings will sell right away in the wine country. maybe one of the wineries will use one of your paintings for their brochure...t-shirts...etc...

Mr. Lobenberg -
These painting are beautiful! I work at a church in Maryland, and would love to project a couple of these during our Sept 4 services. Of course, I would not do it without your permission. If you have a chance, drop me a line -
