"On the farm"

Randy Brewer's avatar Randy Brewer

Herefords on the farm in rural northern Michigan brings back fond memories of growing up in the country. Families came together to help each other without reservation, but with sincerity of heart. From barn raising, tending the fields past sunset, bringing in the hay before it rains, to milking the cows. The smell of hay in the barn lofts and the rooster waking you up in the morning, life seemed simpler back then. It was a life of hard work, with little complaining, where neighbors and families came together to help each other out. To pull up a chair in the kitchen for a piece of pie and a cool glass of fresh milk. This was the normal way of life back on the farm. God, family and country. Where kids were raised to respect their elders and work was always before play, sweat was not foreign to every member of the family, but a way of life. May this painting remind you to look to those times of bonding with each other, helping our neighbor in need, and slowing down our fast paced lives.
