Mid-century San Francisco artist Richard Faralla spent the last six years of his life in Petaluma, Ca. During those years he drew and painted daily. Health issues required that he not construct the finely cut and joined complex wood assemblage, for which he is best known.
The many historical and challenging architectural sites along the Petaluma River Basin were his focus. He applied the philosophy and techniques of abstract expression to develop a unique body of work in watercolor, pastel and ink on paper.
