This is "Cooper Winery."  The owner was very welcoming and actually a little excited to have us sketching his winery.  He took a couple of pictures of us and one with his dog, Bud, in the photo.  He also took a picture of the three of us.  He was very interested in our art which may translate into him using some of them in the winery.  Sorry, I didn't get his name, but here's a link to their Facebook page. 

L to R: LaPoynte, Jim Bumgarner, Nancy Thurston. At Cooper Winery 9.7.12.



Not everyone in the neighborhood was as friendly and accomodating.  Just sayin'.


  1. WOW! They look so fresh, and I love them all!

  2. I wonder if what is different with your sketches, since you went to Santa Domingo, is that you don't worry about every little detail. There are so many lines left off and it's THOSE that add the interest! You made Cooper a whole lot more interesting than it was! Nice Job!

  3. Your sketch of the "Unknown" Winery is great.
