Under a Tree

This 9x12 oil on panel is the third painting I did on Saturday while sitting under a tree.  The tree in the painting is located just behind the little house at Haley Farm.   As I worked on it, the farmer came and moved some cows to the fenced in area just behind me.  I became aware of this when I started to hear loud chomping of grass clumps.  The farmer arrived from another location on a four-wheeled vehicle which he drives while holding his cute little dog who follows him everywhere.

Painter Ann Marie Scott, who was exploring the area, took my picture as I sat painting under a tree.  I look more like the farmer than a painter.

Mark, I love the photograph. And, yes, you do look like a painter!
Every bit as much as those those rubes, Vincent and Henri, did.
