Agave Americano

Fess Parker - Pinot Noir

This painting was was based off a friend's photograph of the Agave Americanos that are planted in front of Summerland's post office. While immersed in my very first highly detailed commission painting my brain was seeking relief from the concentration. This stoic agave emerged from my pencil and quickly became my new favorite in the studio. A staple sight while living in beautiful Santa Barbara where the aloes and succulents run free. 
Painted with 100% wine with white and black watercolor accents

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.
