Recently a super terrific woman contact me through my etsy store and asked if I would be open to creating four “boxes” for her son’s room. The jumping off point was this print:

She requested that I use this and another illustration of a tractor that I had already done. Additionally she wanted a hay truck and a hay squeeze. “Oh sure, a hay squeeze,” I said. Of course. A hay squeeze. Who doesn’t know what a hay squeeze looks like? I could draw one from memory, with my eyes closed – like those art class exercises where you had to do “contour drawings.”  But fret not, Fox, she was kind enough to send me some photos of the very hay squeeze that her husband drives.

I loved this project. I was super bummed to package them up and ship them off. But just last week she sent an email and said (and I’m for real quoting – hope she doesn’t mind) “they are perfect! My son and husband are completely mesmerized with them.”

I am blushing.

14″x14″ screenprints on wood. Four coats of varnish.
