Imagined History

Christmas gift paintings this year were imagined old fruit crate labels based on our family’s prune farm heritage.


The Orange Truck Brand label commemorates our orchard truck, which was a cut-down 1937 Dodge van that had originally been a delivery vehicle for Galleon Laundry in San Francisco.


The Taeuffer Family Brand label commemorates my father’s least-favorite farming chore: pickin’ them prunes.

I hope my sisters like their gift paintings.
