"Balducci Estate, Autumn"
Oil   16x20
Inspiration and Design: View subject
The Louis P. Balducci Vineyards is three miles west of Augusta, MO, at 6601 Highway 94 South.  This painting of the estate was commissioned by owner, Carol Balducci, as a present for her husband, Rick.  My goal for this painting was to depict the beautiful and scenic Louis P. Balducci Estate in Autumn.  The estate consists of several remarkable, historic structures.  During Autumn, of particular note the trees surrounding the home turn a brilliant orange.  The barn in the distance is particularly intriguing to me, and I have depicted it on canvas several times in the past.
