Our son, Nathan, is a farm boy at heart. Eventhough he is a civil engineer working for a water resources firm in Englewood, CO, he still retains that "heart in the soil" attitude. Nathan liked the novelty of running the dirt-in-the-face, no air conditioning, 820 John Deere Tractor (circa. 1950s). And so, the subject of this painting.
"You can take the boy off the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy."
My plan is to include another 12 x 12 panel of him working in the field. Hope it turns out.
