Painting of her father's wheelbarrow

Eileen Mahowald:
When we bought my father's home and he later passed away we hauled at least 6 dumpsters away. He fixed things with motors and wheels and loved to garden too. Many of my sibling came to claim things and I was glad. I had long before painted a picture of his wheelbarrow by the shed. I had so many lovely images of my dad and the six peach pits he set in the ground on the sunny side of the house had 3 ft peach trees. Precious treasures ๐Ÿ’š I love that๐Ÿ˜Š

Here it is! drawn/painted 1990. At a later date he titled it, "Man's Treasure" the wheelbarrow is laying down.
The original comment was made in 2015 under something I wrote about my own packrat tendencies. Not about a wheelbarrow, but about my collecting, and angst. Now (this blog shows) I'm collecting images and information about wheelbarrows (and thereby about geography and history and art).
