The Water Bearer

Over the past couple of weekends we have taken some really nice Sunday drives and I have had the opportunity to take a lot of digital photos. One stop was at a wonderful winery in Sonoma County and I took a picture of the side of a beautiful old building ( well, a new building) that looks like old Tuscany, complete with shutters, statues and vines. I used this photo as the background for this piece and added an old vintage image that seemed to look a part of this scene. I also added some vases, stone medallions and a bit of greenery. I really liked how the reflection in the window from the surrounding grounds was picked up naturally.

  2. Whoa! This is gorgeous. The reflection in the window is a great addition, but I was even more fascinated by your treatment of the open shutter. So transparent.

  6. Nostalgic for me since I go to Italy often. You did a great job in recreating the feel and atmosphere of Tuscany.

  9. THis is positively amazing Lori! I love everything about it. The northern part of our state holds such incredible beauty. I love Sonoma & Napa counties sooo much. Have you been to the DiRosa preserve in Napa? That's one of my favorite outings when I am in the area. Have a wonderful weekend!
