Three Generations Taking Time Out for Spring Fishing
Painted: 2000 Published: 2000
Three generations of the same family gather together on this spring morning for a relaxed day of fishing. Grandpa, sitting on a discarded wagon tongue, still uses his trusty old cane pole. The grandkids are equipped with new model rods and reels. Dad carefully baits his son’s hook, while the family dog watches intently. It is a special time, a peaceful time, for both young and old to renew a shared kinship in the spectacular beauty of a rural landscape. For this old farmstead to survive, it has become “Lakeside Trails,” a hobby farm catering to horse owners from a nearby city. The land, once planted with corn and wheat, today boards horses and provides beautiful trails through the rolling countryside for the owner’s city neighbors to enjoy.
