PAINTINGS BY DAN COOPER
SOME OF THE MOST enchanting sights in wine country are the parallel rows of grapevines sweeping up, down, and over the hills. The rich colors of the earth, vegetation and sky are the perfect backdrop for a special kind of harmony between nature in its abundance and human creativity - harvesting the fruit and transforming it with each new vintage into the intoxicating nectar that plays such an essential part of our celebrations and good fellowship.
“In my Vineyard Perspectives series of paintings, I endeavor to capture the inspiring spirit of wine country.
The geometry of the vineyards provides a structure for my compositions that allows me to paint freely with exuberant color, guided by emotional response to the subject and the painting itself.
These paintings are not meant to depict any specific place or time, but rather to grasp the essence of centuries of human experience in the presence of this beautiful, cultivated countryside”
