So this past weekend, I was invited to my Mom's church for a women's dinner. "A Night In My Father's Vineyard." While my Mom read various devotional selections about vineyards relating to John 15:5, "I am the Vine and you are the branches..." I painted. It has been a long time since I have painted and I have to tell you I was a little nervous about pulling out the brushes for the first time in 3 years in front of a large room full of women!! But it all worked out well. I painted a landscape of a vineyard and then one large grape vine/plant with lots of grape clusters on it. I wasn't 100% sold on it the night of the dinner, but after a little tweaking and some repainting the next day, I am quite pleased. The church is going to hang it in their "meeting room" and put a frame around it. It is a very large picture 8ft x 6 ft so it should make quite a statement! Here are some pictures of the during - and wouldn't yuu know it, I didn't get any pictures of it completed! Story of my life!
