"The Old Pumpkin Patch"
Oil     16x20
Inspiration and Design:
This painting was created for an exhibition at the Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art in David City, Nebraska.  The theme of the exhibition was "Agrarian" (pertaining to the land or it's tenure). 

My painting remarks upon the sustenance that springs forth from our land when it is tended.  I provide ample "peril" in my composition; dark sky, rain, barbed wire, and old stump.  The strong "comfort" in this story is the humble old pumpkin patch that lay over the hill.
