This is a painting that was worked on for 3 successive summers, and then put aside for as many years. It's a subject that never stood still, and I ended up chasing its effects all over the place.
This small painting was the result of a single plein air session at Trudy Cooper's Bailand Farms. I was accompanied by Julie Stonebraker Nelson, Bin Li, Ray Munger and Liz Talley. We were later joined by Trudy's 9 year-old grandson Ben, who had his own French easel and paints.
