Luther Burbank Home and Gardens is a city park in Santa Rosa, California that contains the former home, greenhouse, gardens, and grave of noted American horticulturist Luther Burbank. Born in Lancaster, Massachusetts, he spent most of his life in Santa Rosa. It was here that he did most of his plant-breeding experiments. Plum trees, a common crop back in the early 1900’s, were one of his specialties and he introduced over 800 new variety of plants in his lifetime.
This was sketched last weekend with my sketch group Ready, Set, Sketch! I used Ink and watercolor in a hand-made sketchbook.
