Gene Hansen of Edgeley, North Dakota, is not only a retired farmer and landowner, he’s an artist with a plow. The 75-year-old recently paid tribute to the late Prince by plowing a football-field-size love symbol, which was his name for a while, into a field.
"I thought to myself, maybe I should try something like that," Hanson said Monday, May 2. "I didn't tell anyone I was going do it, I didn't even tell my wife I was going to do it. But it's been fun."
He used a drawing of Prince's "love symbol" that he pulled from the internet as his guide, he said.
"I don't have a cab on my tractor. I just have a three-point disk in the back," he said. "I taped that little sign on the hood of the tractor and just went by that."
