I actually started this painting thinking it would be of wine country. Somewhere along the route to Sonama I took a turn north and ended up in moose country. Go figure.

    That’s a hilarious background story about wine country to moose country. All’s well that ends well, and your picture has ended exquistitely.

  • Thanks Peter. I promise I wasn’t drinking any wine when I started this one, so I don’t know how I lost my way! Guess a higher power was guiding my hand? Glad you like the painting!
