Napa Memories


Napa in the 50's and 60's was much different than today. I remember when cows outnumbered wineries. There were about a dozens or so wineries back then, now there are hundreds. My playground were the rolling hills behind our neighborhood. We hiked, made forts in the weeds and had dirt clod battles, and made treehouse lookouts.

These paintings are the first in a series I plan to do that bring back some of those childhood memories of the Napa Valley and surrounding areas.
