This piece is one of my commissions. A friend's father wanted a painting of his homeplace as it was when he was 6 years old. He sketched this setting in pencil and told his daughter about the lay of the land and special things he remembered. I found the site of the old homeplace which had been removed and trees had grown to fill the area. He had very vivid memories and this helped me to see his ideas.
I am glad to say that he was pleased with the painting.
