Fordson Tractor

tractor 2 - Copy

Henry Ford started building this small sized tractor for the small farmer in 1917. Tractors had, up to this time, been large and expensive steam engine powered so this was a revolution in farming. Now the small farmer could plow his land without a team of horses pulling the plow.     oil – 9″ x 12″

Happy Cow – watercolor

Happy Cow - small There’s something about cows I find fascinating. They’re big but so calm and friendly.

This is 9″ x 12″ watercolor with a touch of acrylic so I guess you could call it mixed media.
