I drove past this tractor almost every day for a whole summer on the way to the studio. One day I decided to stop and take some images of it, and that winter I painted it. In the spring when I had made these prints, I stopped into the farm again to give the Farmer one. To my surprise the tractor was in pieces in the garage and was being restored by him and his son. Over Fifty years of patina I had painted was now gone. I named it Another Round because of the plowing pattern used to never go over the same spot twice, round and around. But now she surely is making Another Round of a different sort.
I hope it will be able to help feed families in that community for another fifty years, and the patina can return.
