"Gated Courtyard in Napa Valley (Tra Vigne)"

pastel 20" x 13" 2004

We had a fabulous dinner at Tra Vigne (among the vines) and I was captivated by the courtyard. Later I revisited it and the shadows were dramatic, calling to be drawn. This piece is reminiscent of Sun Dappled Patio in Provence. This is another in my series of Here and There. It also has a companion piece in Quiet Courtyard in Napa Valley.
