Acrylic Painting…The Birth of Cotton

29. Birth of Cotton

The Birth of Cotton

22X22 Acrylic

The painting “The Birth of Cotton” came from my childhood days, my father spending hours in the cotton fields; the rich red soil of Alabama continues to give birth to cotton.  In my memory, I can see him holding the white gold up toward the setting sun from the back of a sway-back mule.  He is also the subject of the poem “The Chickasaw Farmer” in my eBook of poetry “Echoing Images from the Soul”.
