"Dairy Farm Along Rt. 44"
oil, 12 x 24", available at Maple and Main Gallery, Chester - Prelude to Summer Show
This is the road I travel frequently to visit my son at school. His school is up in the Northeast corner of Connecticut and it's about an hour and 45 minute drive for me. I can get there a few different ways but there's something... well.. magical about CT Rt. 44. I don't know why, maybe it's all the twists and turns and just around the corner you'll find a quaint little town like New Hartford, Canaan or Norfolk. The further you north you travel the more farms you spot. One time coming how a BIG BLACK BEAR just ran across the road.. and another time I had to slow down and keep a cautious distance from a small blue pick up truck that was carrying 3x it's height in bushels of hey! Each bump the farmer hit I could see the top bushel edging it's way over to the outer perimeter... I thought for sure I was going to have my keen driving skill to maneuver around fall bushels of hey! Below are a few scenes I painted along my travels...

What a wonderful, wonderful drive you take from time to time. I align with all of it, having grown up on a farm, not in the northeast, but in MN. I was concerned about hay for other reasons: suffocation, chaff, bales dropped off the fork lift as it carried them into the top of the barn for storage. Your paintings are very nostalgic and enjoyable. Thanks for the posts!

Hi Carol, I just remembered that I didn't respond to your comment even though I read it last week. Farm life is never dull or boring... in fact, my husband's dream is to one day own a farm and drive a big red tractor around all day! He loves all kinds of farm animals .. and I love to paint them!
