Dayton, Maine - Summer of '55Haying Season. Inspired by a small b&w snapshot taken by my brother Wallace in the mid-50s. Started in May of 2010, I put the finishing touches on the painting in April 2012, having just sold the piece to my niece Jenna Hamm. After a month showing at the Plastic Club’s annual Members’ Medal Show in May, it was headed to central Alaska. Time for any last minute changes/additions. The painting was quite a departure from prior work. Yellow skies, lots of greens, plus a pickup, a truck, a tractor, and figures.
