Villa Il Crociccio Vines


I set my borrowed chair among the rows of grapevines to paint this one.  I could see how carefully the plants were tended; each one was neatly tied to a stick to keep it upright, and skillfully pruned, presumably by someone who was taught by his grandfather.  

As I sketched, I could hear the staff setting up for our dinner under those trees, as the late afternoon sun bathed everything in a beautiful golden pink light.  Painting a beautiful scene while someone else cooks my dinner--heaven!
