Under the Picnic Table Oak Tree

Oil Painting by Sterling Sheehy

Oil on Canvas, 48×76 cm, June 29, 2019

Looking west over Alexander Valley. This is a plein air painting I made in the family vineyards. We were experiencing a heat wave that day and I started melting after three hours in the sun, so I painted what I could then turned tail and retreated to a swimming pool. A few days later I cleaned it up in the home studio.
