Farm To Table At Healdsburg Museum

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve created some small-scale works that depict local agriculture for the Healdsburg Historical Museum’s new show, Farm to Table (Aug. 7 – Nov. 10.)

As a third generation native of Healdsburg, the agricultural vistas of the area are my home territory.

Growing up here in the 1950s and 60s, I was surrounded by prune orchards, vineyards and fields of grazing livestock.

In some of these paintings I take inspiration from my imagination — Moo Cow reminds me of Sweetheart, the cow who lived next door when I was a kid. And in others, I draw from reality — the chicken paintings are the flock that keeps my cousin Colleen in eggs these days and you can see that red pick-up truck at the Farmer’s Market every Saturday.

The museum, 221 Matheson St., Healdsburg, is open Thursday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s worth a visit.
