The Hubbards married late in life (1943, when Harlan and Anna were both in their 40s), and soon thereafter built themselves a shantyboat on which they made an adventurous and long trip down the Ohio to the Mississippi and then on to the Gulf. Once that was trip was complete, they returned to Kentucky and settled down at Payne Hollow and built their simple homestead, where they would live the rest of their lives (Anna died in 1986 and Harlan in 1988).
More information about them can be found at...
To be clear: I have no connections to either Payne Hollow or the Hubbards, I'm just a fan of their work and would like to help others learn more about them. I hope to provide here some excerpts from Harlan's writings and about his life and art. Enjoy and be challenged.
