This is the only thing I am really good at drawing. If it's a building, I can depict it in loving detail. This is a real building, the tasting shed and party area at "Naked Mountain" vineyard and winery. The owners requested that I do a portrait of their building, since it is about to be remodeled. What you see here is a black and white drawing (actually, there are little bits of color as indications) which will be colored in with watercolor. When it's done I will frame it and present it to the vineyard owners. They are paying me in wine, and a bit of publicity since this will be placed on the wall for the wine-sippers to see.
