Re: Getting The Job Done

Thanks for posting this photo Oldnmartist.... this is such a great shot and certainly speaks to simpler times and so similar to my painting. I should look back and have a look at some of the old photos lying around here. I always say nothing like black and white photos for character and this photo tells such a great story.
Thanks again.
