Fall Vineyard, Esslingen


Here's my current project, which I hope to finish in a day or two. It's a view of the vineyard above Esslingen, ablaze in fall colors.  There's plenty of work to be done yet, but I'm pleased with it up till now, so I thought I'd post this picture.

Morning, Sao Pedro Estoril

This painting has been languishing on the shelf since July.  I think it's finally finished now.

Painting Esslingen (still)

Here's another view of Esslingen.  The village is full of lovely old buildings.

Painting Esslingen


On the hilltop above Esslingen is a high wall,straddled by this imposing structure.    The building and wall overlook the terraced vineyards and the old city center, which houses the cellars of Kessler Sekt, Germany's oldest producer of sparkling wine.

Crows at Dawn

Lately I've been seeing a lot of things I'd like to paint while driving to work in the morning. This is one of them.
