My easel was set up in the back field of Crystal Springs Dairy. I had arranged with the farmer Pete Donnelly for a fairly big group of painters from Eric Rhoads Publishers Invitational to come and be there for the "super moon" rising in June. The other artists arrived shortly after I had.
Pete had just finished baling hay in that field. It had been touch n go for haying this past June because it had been raining seemingly non-stop. The break in the weather was predicted to last a few days, long enough to cut, dry and bale. Then we artists took advantage of a sweet smelling evening and set out to capture very fast light changes in pastel, watercolor and oil.
This work is my record of the day.
