I only got to meet Gordon once, when he came into BH&H’s studio with his 4′ x5’ layout for a POP for grocery chains. I still can see it in my mind, I was so impressed with his talent.

I remember Gordon Brusstar well, he did several illus­tra­tions for us back in the 60s and early 70s when I was AD at AF-​GL. He was a great guy – jovial and funny and was always laughing. He and his wife oper­ated a tree farm some­where out of Napa. He also showed paint­ings in the Yountville mart and in the old Nut Tree. A very talented artist.

    I have several paint­ings by Gordon Brusstar that were purchased in Yountville in the 70s. One that I really love is a very large hori­zontal indus­trial scene with workers taking a lunch break by oil drums (Stan­dard Oil?). I also have a a large (mainly blues) night-​time dock scene and a medium-​sized pastoral of a church in Napa Valley.
