The Vine


The Vine

This painting took about ten years to complete. The artist once developed a vineyard, growing his grapes to rock type. His research revealed that different varieties of wine grapes had preferences for certain rock types. This painting shows the roots of a vine collecting a variety of tastes from a variety of rock types.


Clays tend to promote prolific fine root growth. Hard layers present temporary barriers to root growth. Sands allow roots to travel faster and water tables terminate root growth.


There is still much to learn and to be drunk. Cheers.
