Sunset Corn Planter

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."
