Afternoon" is a finely detailed study, embellished with rich
reds for the palate and the eye. Christensen gives wine country
romance a fresh look and a warm feeling with this watercolor
painting. He captures hundreds of red hues from the sun-dappled
leaves of a Japanese maple to the succulent bunch of grapes.
The premium wines he has chosen for this piece are among Napa’s
finest, and set the tone for a first-rate experience to follow.
The contrasting textures illuminated by the afternoon light
evokes a sense warmth.
