Farmer Reading His Newspaper

Farmer Reading His Newspaper 24x30 Oil on Masonite

Updated photo Nov 1 2009

A hard working man relaxing with his newspaper before his day begins, after the morning chores have been done or at the end of the day.

I think that I'm going to stop right here before I mess it up (more?). I was thinking about the left foreground - seems too smooth & bare. BUT I dislike making grass, gardens & such. I even thought about putting in his pooch but thought that was too cliche.


  1. Absolutely delightful Ken - just right!

  2. Thanks, Liz. I looked at your blog and admired your "Autumn". I think that I don't do still lifes very well so I admire those who can pull it off so well as you did.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
