More quick – and these were REALLY quick – sketches done while visiting the Napa Valley. We were at the Rutherford Hills Winery and my daughter was involved in a wine tasting. Rather than sample I took my sketchbook outside and tried to capture the ancient olive trees on the property
and the roses growing near the winery building. Roses are frequently planted at the end of a row of grape vines because the early settlers each used a different rose to mark the boundary of their property. Even today a new vineyard may have a rose developed and planted to define the property. Pretty nifty…makes a beautiful environment.
