I don’t want any of us to ever forget summer days like this. Three generations working their tails off under the blazing sun. One of them finished his 12 hour overnight shift at a fertilizer plant to come out here in the field digging the most horrendous clay ever. Another is 78 and would much rather be golfing with friends. And the 10 year climbing into the tractor is just learning what it takes to be a farmer working day in and day out no matter what. The 7 year old will have her turn soon.
Sherri Davis is an artist and photographer who lives a messy, crayon and lego filled life on a farm smack dab in the middle nowhere in Southern Ontario Canada with her husband, two children, a dog (sometimes two) and her camera. In winter you can find her skating on her backyard rink with her kiddos or building a snow fort. In the summer she’ll be barefoot in the grass chasing a praying mantis/butterfly/snake or at the beach making yet another sand castle. She has a strange obsession with clotheslines and has been known to wash clean bedding just so her kids can play in the wet sheets as they dry in the wind. Sherri is addicted to fresh-baked bread, caprese salad, chocolate chili pepper tea and has recently discovered (and fallen in love with) the rule breaking magic of freelensing.
