I was in Wisconsin farm country for the past five days, painting murals. When I had a few extra minutes, I went outside to see some of the beautiful countryside. This is a section of a corn field that is terraced with alfalfa. There's no alfalfa in my painting, but the corn here is part of what feeds five hundred dairy cows to make one of Wisconsin's many cheeses.  

I painted for eight to twelve hours a day during my stay, but when I got home I just HAD to come down to my studio and paint a small piece to post.  Fortunately, I had made several pieces to post while I was gone.
