Painted with Santa Barbara County Wines;
Sanford Winery - Pinot Noir
Dana Volk Wines - Grenache & Pinot Noir
Inspired by the rolling hills and livestock throughout Santa Ynez Valley wine region in Santa Barbara County. These three are up to something in the fields or just watching all the wine tasting visitors come thru their farmstead.
Made with wine and ink
Each wine is different and oxidizes at a different pace. Each painting is photographed after the painting is complete to capture their true colors before they start changing. A painting will continue to change colors over time as it continues to oxidize, this makes it a living & breathing piece of art.
A wide range of colors can be extracted from wine depending on the processing or painting methods used. Either straight from the bottle, fermented in a container or evaporated sludge from an open container, wine painting can be very complex or very simple.
