"This is a friends farm in an area called Totty's Bend. The "Bend" has been a valuble resource for me. Paintings everywhere you look. Beautiful area."
"This is my favorite time of year, late winter. The colors for me are beautiful. You can see the bones of the landscape."
"I absolutely love painting roundbale paintings. One of my favorite subjects. This is a friend's field and I have painted roundbales in this field for many years now. Hope to do it again soon."
