Sunny slope at Shooting Star Vineyard, Somerset, CA10 x 8”, Oil on Linen
We saw the land filled with tall grasses and impressive boulders near the creek, and bought it for a farmhouse and vineyard. After many years, we now enjoy sipping Merlot, Tempranillo or Rosé on that front porch. It took until now to finally paint the sun as it lights the farmhouse dormers overlooking the vineyard below. It is as it appears — an oasis and a respite from Sacramento’s hustle and bustle.
