Art Brokerage: Lowell Herrero American Artist: Lowell Herrero celebrates his lifelong enchantment with nature's beauty and fecundity and the deep human connection to it. Herrero's decade-long love affair with the Napa Valley has been the immediate inspiration for his earthy paintings. Yet, these are imaginary landscapes created in his mind's eye from a life of keen observation and experience. Herrero delights in farmers engaged in varieties of agricultural labor. He renders them bursting with life, over-large, and content -- extensions of the very soil they cultivate. Vineyards stretch into the distance as grape pickers enjoy lunch under a cloudles blue sky. Lavender harvesters bend to their task, and anfield of rolled bales tells us the hard work of haying is at an end. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
