Very thankful to have Winery Road in the collection of Jim and Amber O’Donnell. I’ve worked with Jim for years and was delighted that he chose this piece to hang in his home. This piece was painted during a trip with a large group of friends to Washington Missouri. We all stopped on the side of the road to get our photo taken and I saw this view and took a lot of photos of the area. Then went back into my studio to paint this image in acrylic on canvas. This same image was also used on a wine label for Collver Family Winery in Barry Illinois.
This is a small sketch that I did on location of the Hood Canal. I was sitting near a look out tower, but it was too hot to paint up there. So I sat at the bench at the bottom of the tower. While there a young family visited. That is the two boy’s forms in the drawing.
