Golden Valley, AZ,
Lee Of Hartland
Painting - Oil On Linen
One of the award winning paintings in the Last American Farm Series. The small farms are disappearing and the land is being used for housing and commercial use. Lee was born on this farm in the late 1800's and worked the family farm to make a living until his passing at the age of 95. He was a friend who told me many stories of his past life on the family farm. He could remember wolves in this area of Hartland Michigan and trading with native americans when he was a child. When his parents passed on he inherited the farm and raised his own family on the farm. He passed in the late 1980's. His was buried in the family plot near his beloved farm. More of the Last American Farm series can be viewed here at FAA by searching my body of work such as - The Last Wooden Silo - Farm Land - Corn Crib - and more.
