A Painting Today, "You Can't Keep a Good Man Down"
This new painting I am working on is 16 x 20 oil on canvas of my wife's great grandpa Twitchell. A farmer in Maine during the early part of the last century, he had a lot of children, when he was struck with polio. The story goes that he received some charity from the towns people, but when his children were teased in town and at school, he forthwith refused any future charity and farmed his land on his hands and knees for the rest of his days. This he did successfully and with my future great admiration. I think when I finish this painting I may title it, "You Can't Keep a Good Man Down". Let me know what you think.
I am getting closer to my goal of creating on painting a day. Many of my friends in the art world are following this discipline and I can only see good come from it.
