Sonoma County landscapes in oil by Laura G. Roney
Laura's Roney's latest oil paintings reflect views throughout Sonoma County, either vineyards or Sonoma County parks. The land in Sonoma County has such varied landscapes, and provides a near endless opportunity for breath taking scenes. Some paintings focus on vines, others focus on vistas. Still other paintings focus on both.
Laura says,"This part of the country is so beautiful. It is a pleasure to capture it in paintings. My paintings focus on the breathtaking beauty that makes up the wine country. I am endlessly enamored with the gorgeous vines and stunning vistas. Many of my paintings include the stunning rolling hills and mountain ranges along with the fantastic grapes and vineyards".
Roney has focused on her art since 1993. She received basic training at institutions of higher learning, but says she truly learned by studying with practicing artists. She is currently pursuing her Master's Degree in Fine Art at Academy of Art in San Francisco.
