Follow-through (Malbec)

Here are the last two of my six recent paintings created with wine (about 90%) and watercolour (about 10%). Some wines are hybrids, so why not my paintings?

When I asked Sherry Martin of Karlo Estates (in beautiful Prince Edward County) what their signature wine was and she replied "Malbec," I was surprised, expecting her to say their Van Alstine Port because it is absolutely amazing (but, then again, I would prefer to drink that Port rather than paint with it...). The vintage of the Malbec I used is 2008.

Both of these paintings (as well as two made with Cabernet Franc and two made with Baco Noir...and, of course, many of my other paintings) will be available for sale at the Small Pond Arts Gallery during the 2011 Prince Edward County Studio Tour.
