I am honoured to have this painting in the collection ...
Down on the Farm 2006 oil on canvas 14" x 22"
Above is the invitation piece by Ron Woodall,
Coutts Homestead, 1977
I borrow a passage from Jim's statement about the donation:
Business and politics would keep me travelling for decades. But along the way I made a wonderful discovery. Virtually every village in the world has at least one person drawing, painting, carving – sometimes you have to look hard, but they are there. While travelling I often visited them and began collecting works by local blacksmiths, carpenters, painters, sketchers and sculptors. And in recent years I’ve come home to discover first-class artists in Nanton, Cayley, Fort Macleod, High River and Claresholm.
