Living in the middle of California's farmland is especially beautiful this time of year. It's grape harvesting season and I commute daily through a back road that winds through the vineyards. It is very humbling...all the work that goes into producing that perfect fruit. We don't have the rolling hills of Napa Valley but it's lovely all the same. I'll be taking my easel out this weekend to set up for a little plein air painting at the edge of my favorite vineyard.
