In this one I tried to capture the feel of a late afternoon walk I took with my family through the neighborhood. The puddle and the trail were added using my artistic license. Luckily I had just paid the renewal fee.

If you look through my paintings you will see that this is not the first time I have painted this old farm implement. I keep returning to it. The two buckets hold the seed corn and the two circular disks sticking up are laid down and mark the rows. It is usually pulled by a mule. This is on my great grandfather's farm that is still in the family. I once found an old children's schoolbook that belonged to my grandfather. In the front pages he had scrawled a note in pencil. "I walked behind a mule all day and my legs is so tired."
