Wine Country in Texas

This may surprise you but Texas is WINE COUNTRY. We have more than 30 unique wineries scattered throughout the Hill Country, giving us a little bit of Tuscany with a Texas touch. There’s someplace new to explore around almost every bend on our quaint back roads. Each winery has its own personality, yet all share a commitment to quality and a fervent passion for what they do. So, Jack and I decided my last Limited Original for Fredericksburg just had to be Vineyards. The unembellished print is shown above.

My Limited Originals are framed in our White Senkarik Signature Frame. The blue tape covers the edge, when the embellishing is finished it’s removed, leaving the crisp, clean frame. The sky is enhanced first.

The distant mountains have been glazed with Ultramarine Blue + a liberal amount of Liquin. Then the shot of light on the far meadow is brightened up and the vineyards in the background are highlighted. The vines in the foreground are repainted with a lot of texture. The thick Alkyd Oil paint will be dry enough tomorrow to add the final coat of Liquitex Gel Medium.

Thick Alkyd is also applied to the petals of the Sunflowers. The centers will be added with MUD + Liquin.

The Grapes are Ready       24″ x 36″       Limited Original

Red orange Poppies and Lavender complete the flowers in the front. The final touch is to embellish the plump grapes, ready to harvest, hanging on the vines. You might want to add the Texas Wine Country to your travel plans. Enjoy a drive through our beautiful rolling hills and visit the vineyards. Just to let you know, we are having a special Senkarik “Experience” to welcome the Fredericksburg Art Gallery to our Team on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2012. We’d love for you to come. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
