Concord Grape Arbor is a 14.5 x 14.5 oil on panel painting framed by the artist with weathered wood. Concord grapes, a robust and aromatic grape whose ancestors were wild native species found growing in rugged New England soil. An American favorite since 1854, after Boston-born Ephraim Wales Bull planted 2200  seedlings from cuttings, looking for an early ripening grape. He won a prize at the Boston Horticultural Society in 1853 but died poor. Inscription on his grave reads - "He sowed, others reaped."
