Oil on Canvas.
Frame sells separately.
Note from the artist:
"There's a farm which sits on the edge of the highway. From the outside, driving past, it's impossible to see the greenhouses and old tractors from behind the houses built in the 1800's. In the driveway sits a red Ford from after 1990, and deeper into the property is a red ford from before 1960. The property is a display of what real wealth is: toys, maintained over generations, still fully functional.
The farmer is in his early 80's. He washes his face after tilling the land in the seat of an antique tractor, and his wife picks him up in a new, white BMW. To see the preservation of wealth inspired me to preserve one quiet Sunday, the only day which the old farmer does not come to the land."
