_____Scenes of Spinetta Family Vineyards are the subjects of Michael Spinetta's acrylic and mixed media paintings. He helps build the rock walls, raise the flowers, and grow the grapes - and then he paints them. Michael's media of choice are ceramics, glass, acrylics, pastels, digital photo manipulation, and rocks. If Michael is at the bar, he’ll talk to you about the images, The Gold Country Times or the butterfly garden.
Many of these pieces online are sold (THANK YOU), and are a few years old.

The "perfect" bunch of Zinfandel grapes interpreted over '24 hours'. The vine is near the ruins of an old miner's house. Crisp black lines, metallic accents, and roughly hewn textures define the beauty of the natural subject as much as the surreal, flat, "stained glass effect" breaks the subject down.
