MOTHER ROAD 1938 OKLAHOMA

 

The expresses the failing farms in Oklahoma during the dust bowl years.



This painting means a lot to me.

In 1938, my father, mother and I left a dust-bowl farm near Cordell, Oklahoma and headed for California on the newly paved Route 66.


John Steinbeck called Route 66

“the Mother Road” of the country.




I consider my MOTHER ROAD SERIES of paintings an homage to my father, mother, grandparents, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, who left the failing farms in Oklahoma and headed for a new life.
