This painting is framed in a beautiful fresco frame hand-painted by the artist to perfectly compliment the artwork.
This original sculpted
artwork was painted in pure egg tempera made from natural
crushed stone & earth mixed with a bit of water and egg yolk..
Blues come from crushed lapis lazuli, greens from malachite &
natural green earth found around Verona Italy. Painter Linda
Paul uses fascinating colors which have been "lost" for
hundreds of years & new colors which she has discovered in the
Rocky Mountains. Her earth ochers come from the
ancient mines of France & Italy.

painting was created!
I begin my sketching out the main elements
that I want
I wanted to play off my last painting,
Angels in the Vines with a similar
window, surrounded by grapevines, with a
view of a vineyard in the background.
This stage I sculpt in bas-relief the grapes and vines.
Once it is sculpted , I can not change the
location of any items. Sculpting is always slow, but lots of fun
The painting part begins! I am starting to
lay down my base color. Even though this is not a
very pretty stage of the artwork, its very important
because the base colors I start with set the mood
and direct the color palette that I choose for
subsequent layers. I speak of layers because
an egg tempera painting is layer upon layer of thin
color washes. It is the exact opposite of a oil
painting created with thick color and a palette
knife. By sculpting the artwork first in bas-relief, I add incredible texture and a tactile element to
I have started to work on the background landscape of
the painting and have added a bit of color to the
sculpted grapes around the window. I am creating
terraced vineyards and a road leading to the fields.
I have developed the vineyard landscape to the point
that I can start painting the sculpted grapes and
leaves around the window. I still have more
work to do on it though. I really love the
colors of a vineyard in fall, so I will carry that
theme throughout the artwork. I plan to paint the
grapes in shades of amethyst purple, green and
raspberry merlot and
the leaves in both green and turning leaf fall
|I am working on the
grapes and leaves that surround the window. I work from
light to dark (the opposite of an oil painting) so the
leaves start out yellow, then I layer spice colors of
oranges and golds, and
finally the greens. Then I take off some off the top
color to reveal the light underneath ( I like
complex layered color). Finally I will
deepen some areas to make the colors pop. I
still have not decided whether I will darken the
background behind the grapes. Painting is a journey
that only creates magic when you go with the flow
and let it draw you in a direction
|This artwork is really starting to move together
as a cohesive piece now.
The colors I am using are the "in colors"
Even though I use natural pigments to make my
egg tempera paint, I can blend them in any way
to create any color I envision. You can decorate and
inspire an entire room just from using the colors in this painting.

"Hi Linda have just received THE WINE CELLAR

really am blown away by it. from a very HAPPY JEFF,

The Tuscany Window tile mural is absolutely
beautiful. It is a great feature in my wine cellar
and reminds me of my days spent in Tuscany.
Everyone who visits my cellar is very complimentary.
