Wine Tasting – Featured Art Print

“Wine Tasting” is an art print I am featuring from my Street Scenes/People Gallery. The print is done using an impasto oil technique of an outdoors setting used for wine tasting. This style uses bold brush strokes and strong primary colors. I like what the bold brush strokes have created. There is a lot of detail in this art print, yet the large brush strokes simplify the shapes while creating warm texture. My goal in this art print was to draw the viewer in and make them want to spend time wine tasting in this setting. The shaded area in the foreground becomes more prominent with the subtle sunshine in the background. Not one to miss details; let’s not forget the one wine glass left on the back table. Is it left or is it yet to be served?

The setting for this particular art print is the Kuleto Winery in Northern California. The winery is privately owned and a reservation is required for tours and wine tasting. It sits way up on a hill overlooking the Napa Valley. This particular setting is one of many they offer to sit and enjoy the afternoon sampling wine. Can you see yourself enjoying an afternoon with friends wine tasting in this setting?


I invite you into the Street Scenes/People Gallery to view additional art prints.

“Fountain Urns” Cropping an Art Print

I do a fair amount of custom work with my art prints. The other day, one of my clients contacted me with a request that I wanted to share. Her request concerned a series of art prints she purchased last year. One of the prints is the first one I am attaching. The scene is a fountain of large urns located on the estate of the Kuleto Winery in Northern California. The art print is done in an impasto style of oil painting which uses large dramatic brush strokes. The print is in a landscape format (longer width than height) and after months of looking at her print grouping, she realized it would look better with one of her prints being in a portrait mode instead of the landscape. The print in question is the one below.

So her request was “Can I have this in portrait format?”  My response was no problem….it will create totally different prints, but here is what I can do…

and the other print becomes……

By just cropping the art print differently, I have not only created two new art prints, but also given her the ability to keep a theme together on her wall and still mix/match landscape and portrait mode in her presentation.
