New Work: "Back Forty"

Jumping in the old pickup and heading out to survey the back forty has been one of his favorite things to do for years. There is something about the wide open space and remoteness that soothes his sole. Sometimes he strips down for a dip in the stream that cuts through the amber hills. Othertimes he lays in the bed of the truck soaking in the sun as clouds, like billowy sails, cross the big blue sky. Mostly he comes alone, though occasionally he's been known to bring one of the young farmhands, to show him the lay of the land. 

While the original is available for purchase, it will remain with the Lyman-Eyer gallery through the end of my show this July. However limited edition Gallery and Studio prints are available for purchase direct through BREYETTE.COM.

Michael Breyette: The Tan and Dark whiskered Man was checking out his wide expanse of land, he just had to treat himself to nice, cooling dip in the inviting, rippling water but he had to share it with a couple of Frogs. They appreciated his company and like all of us his handsome body was most pleasant to admire.
