Grapes – Divine Ananda
(Abundant, succulent, nourishing, full of vigour)
Painting done on Hahnemühle fine art water color 450gsm paper with Schminke artists watercolors measuring about 14*19 inches.
The inspiration for this painting is from a lovely little garden that we had while living in Weil am Rhein, Germany. The front fencing and wall was completely covered with grape vines and this vine had found its way back here into our nook. I added the bunch of grapes and the robin from parts of other photos from the RIL of wetcanvas.com. Thanks to Marita and Pete for the same.
I grew beautiful bright red Geraniums (Spiritual Happiness – calm and smiling, nothing can disturb it) in pots in this space and they flowered abundantly through out the summer, I wish I had taken photos of those too, for another painting………
