I saw this scene a couple times driving out Hwy 58 and wanted to paint it before they pick up the hay. When I got there yesterday there was a cloud cover. I stood on the edge of the highway sketching the scene and realized I wouldn't be able to paint there with all the traffic that was going by so I pulled into the nearby gas station and thought I would just try to get the colors on a little canvas. After a while the clouds lifted. I actually like how it came out. So now I'm hoping to do a 12" x 16" using all the info I have. We'll see.
