We used to live in a rural area outside of Ogden, Utah next to a farm family that sold their produce in a road side Fruit Stand. After high schools were out in the spring he would recruit the young people to help pick, haul and sell the fruits and vegetables. It seemed the girls preferred working at the stand, and often devised their own costumes/uniforms so they could get sun tans while they worked. I have painted one such day at the stand.
I grew up on a small farm in Southeastern Idaho, and had the chance to work with my Dad and Grandfather closely until I was fourteen. We had cows, chickens, pigs, and sheep, and grew hay and grain for feed, and potatoes as a cash crop. I was driving a tractor by the time I was six, and milking the family cow about the same time. Many of the paintings on my blog site are how I remembered those years.
I spent two years in Brazil on a mission for my church, then returned to go to college at BYU where I met my first wife. I didnít go to Vietnam so I went to work on the Utah Highway Patrol to do at least some public service. Eventually we moved to Texas to farm dry Land cotton just in time to get in three years of farming on a large scale...
