Terry Williams Searcy artist and framer picture of his dad

I consider this a small masterpiece done by our local artist, Terry W Williams, and I had to do some master bargaining to get it from him.  Terry painted this in 1970 and he says it is a portrait of his dad, Nathan Hale Williams from Sunflower Co, Mississippi.  He titled it "My Share of the Crop."

Terry did not dwell on the real meaning of the title but history tells us how there was a lot of share-cropping in the South.  Farmers worked for their share of the crops and the crops might be too puny to do much sharing.  He appears to have one basket of probably cotton.

My husband loves this picture because it reminds him of his grandfather who sat this way often. Wonder how many of us can sit in this style today?

Terry let me buy this only because he knows I will love it as he did and that it solidifies our friendship through the last 45 years.  All of you will know Terry from his beautiful duck prints that he made throughout the years and his beautiful frames that hold so many of our pictures and paintings.  Terry can paint (and draw) so well!  He now hangs out in his frame shop and art studio at the historic Mayfair Hotel.  Stop by.

Thanks, Terry W Williams!

That is quite special.

Great pose and the Coke sign  adds a quirky touch.
