The classical station here in the Chicago area has a morning host with the last name of Grapentine.  He's been a part of my morning routine since 1986 when he joined WFMT.  As I conjured the title to this piece I giggled at the opportunity to honor him.  Carl Grapentine, this one's for you.  

In my many years as a mural painter I never had the chance to paint grapes that weren't stenciled.  I painted every other kind of fruit and vegetable, but not grapes.  I challenged myself to do it today, and it was a blast!  Expect to see more.

This painting can be seen on  in my gallery.  It is also for purchase through this web site.

Thank you for visiting again today.
