How Did the Mural Happen?

Originally inspired by a painting done by Ana Nelson and Phil Dynan, the downtown mural project began with a request by Roy Gould. Roy has spent a lot of time and energy on various beautification projects in downtown Red Bluff. He immediately saw the value of the color and humor in “Cow 223” and asked his tenants, Phil & Ana, if the image could be painted on the side of his building. From there, the vision expanded to include five more panels, all animals residing in Tehama County!

Phil & Ana started painting the cow panel and immediately were approached by members of the community who wanted to help. Dr. Don Gerber, age 90, was one of the first volunteers to do “fill-in” work. Don is a retired dentist, but has always had a talent for drawing and art. Don was quickly joined by Anthony Barajas, age 9. Anthony has already demonstrated a true talent for art and as seen here, with classmate Bekka, began plotting the grid work for panel number two.

The six panels will take about three months to complete and include “Cow 223”; “Baby” an
adopted pony; “Nugoro” a miniature donkey; “Bunny” a Barbados Sheep; “Gertie”, a retired mule; and “Alberta” a calico cat who truly believes she is a human (favorite food: Asparagus!!).
