On the eve of the summer solstice I spent a lovely,
evening painting sweet smelling fresh mown hay fields.
I imagine there is, for most artists, a particular subject
that connects with you in a special way. Hay fields
have a special place in my heart and I look forward to
painting them with great anticipation every June.
There is of course a great amount of bird activity around
the fields and the scents that fill the evening air is
like a ride in a time machine as I close my eyes
and fill my lungs. The sweet nostalgia of years past.
