Grandpa’s Herd of Shorthorns

Painting Description

In the early part of the Twentieth Century, my grandfather was a well-known breeder of Shorthorn cattle, a dual purpose milk and beef breed imported from Scotland. I show his farm on Fischer-Hallman Road in Waterloo with these prize cattle. Although the farmhouse still exists, the farm is no longer there, and the breed of cattle has all but disappeared. I painted this family history piece for use on my autobiography, “Picture Maker”.

In the early part of the 20th century, my grandfather was a well-known breeder of Shorthorn cattle, a dual purpose milk and beef breed imported from Scotland. Here I show his farm with these prize cattle on Fischer-Hallman Road in Waterloo. Although the farmhouse still exists, the farm is no longer there, and that breed of cattle has all but disappeared. This family history piece is included in my autobiography, "Picture Maker". I’m pleased that this painting lives with my cousin who was raised in this very house.
