Mar Abella, Los Angeles, Beauty and Bounty
Title of work: Beauty and Bounty
Media: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 18 by 24 inches
The painting pairs Jordan’s wines with the beauty and the bounty of the Los Angeles basin. In the picture, the Jordan estate is placed within the city’s boundaries, with the towers of downtown LA visible on the distance, far beyond the field of vineyards and the oak-covered foothills.
A beautiful woman of mixed heritage raises a glass of wine as if to invite the viewer to join her in the pleasure of savoring one of Jordan’s award-winning wines. She is standing in front of a lush red curtain, her face brightened by the golden yellow of the mansion’s walls complemented by the purple wisteria. She smiles while also enjoying the wisteria vines In the center, a scroll unravels to reveal a drawing of the Jordan estate, surrounded by the plentiful cornucopia of the region’s crops, including grapes, both green and purple, figs, apples, and olives.
The still life is completed with two bottles of Jordan’s wines.
