The Ox by Todd McPhetridge
This image, titled, "The Ox ", by Todd McPhetridge is the stuff of many a boy's dreams. The bright red tractor symbolizes too many children a happy childhood, playing in a sandbox with such a tractor, as "Ox" in a smaller version. The photo might also be evocative to others of real life on a farm and on such a tractor; rather than playing in a suburban sandbox, many other, more rural folk may have learned to drive on such a big red tractor, as "Ox". This fine landscape print would be right at home, whether your walls are in a city, a suburb or the country."The Ox Print", is a stand back moment between man and mother nature. Humid air, complete quite for miles, as if the mute button was hit on the world. Thick muddy acers that once were once bright green reflecting generational growth and standing above the waved ocean taking in mother nature's incredible talents. The heart of the Ox, the blood red machinery is the beat of the picture and you can feel the pulse. Capture by the beat, you know that this is not the first battle for this land. Feeling relaxed, clear headed but unsure why. You are in a place of familiarity, comfort, but know that you are not in a comfortable situation.
