"Dad" is a character study of an old farmer of Hog Jaw
valley. "The old man bears a striking resemblance to my own Dad," stated
Ben Hampton when being interviewed about the painting. Great attention was
given to facial detail-the kind expression, the gentle eyes, the deep wrinkles,
the weathered lines-coupled with the friendly gesture of the hand, all gave
special character and meaning to "Dad."
