I have just released this new work titled "Good Harvest" which will soon be on display locally. This is an 18 x 24 oil on linen depicted a hard working lady harvesting her crop under a broiling noonday sun in the late 1930s. For me, the straw hat steals the scene and communicates that it was hot that day. This is the only figure I have painted where you do not see the face. Instead the dirt stains on her apron and the weathered look of her hands indicate this lady works hard at what she does. Not a farmer as a hobby but by necessity, the backbone of rural America in the recent past.
