This was done on Saturday out on the north fork of Long Island in Jamesport. I parked along the busy road with all the traffic and sat with my car blocking me from the traffic. Just as I was finishing two women came over to see what I was painting. They had seen me from the house they were staying in which was immediately to the right of this field. They were visiting for the weekend from Ohio.
We got to talking for a while and one of them wanted to know what drew me to paint this scene. I laughed and said that I had recently sold a painting of an east end farm and needed to replace it. That was one reason. But the other reason is I like scenes like this where the composition leads you into the painting and scenes that have a depth to them. I look for farm scenes whenever I am out that way, but often from one season to the next the same fields are often not planted. It is so disappointing to drive all the way to a spot you remember, only to find it has already been plowed under or it is just brown dirt. This spot worked out well...the even left me a tractor to include. This is 5 x 7.
