Gallery


I look to express the beauty of the vineyards, both as a vintner and an artist.

Fifth generation vintner and artist,  Darcie Kent has been painting professionally for the past 25 years. She works in both acrylic and watercolors, painting images of the wine country and other scenes of northern California. Darcie’s recent acrylic works incorporate metallic gold, silver or copper leafing creating a dynamic painting that changes in appearance with lighting. All of Darcie Kent Vineyards wine labels are reproductions of Darcie’s original art. Darcie’s work can be viewed at the Wine Gallery located at 7000 Tesla Road in Livermore. Painting Commissions are also available. Please contact the winery for more information.

MADDEN CAB SUNSET

This vineyard lies off Arroyo Road in Livermore. I call it Peace on Earth for the holiday sign that hangs behind it. The vines turn a rich golden red in the fall and at sunset it glows with incredible intensity.

SUNSET ABOVE THE FIREPIT VINEYARD

We have a tradition in our family of celebrating the days end with a glass of wine as the sun sets. No matter what we are doing we take a break and go outside to toast the end of the day.

Point Lobos

I have wanted to paint this scene ever since I first visited Pt. Lobos.  It’s my favorite park, filled with all kinds of sea and land animals and has amazing hiking trails with drop dead beautiful views.

Leafing Out Final

Leafing Out

I love doing portraits of the vines. They have so much character and have so many stories to tell from their shaggy bark and twisted trunks. This vine is just leafing out in the spring with Mt. Diablo in the distance.

I’ve always thought the barrels made such an amazing graphic image. This day the colors were so vivid with the sunlight and shadows that they begged a more playful treatment.
