Hazen Bean Field
8X10, Oil on Panel
I started this classic Delta scene en plein air on the same trip where I painted the Prairie School House. I put some finishing touches on it in the studio. A crop duster was working in the field next to this one while I painted. I made sure I checked the wind direction and thankfully I was upwind. I made sure I got some pictures of the crop duster and that may wind up as a painting. Also just down the road was the place in De Valls Bluff where I had my first real BBQ sandwich. That place will make a great painting for sure!
This painting makes 47 out of 75 counties complete and 5 done this year. I'm way behind on my goal of 20 for this year but maybe a good weekend trip when the weather turns this fall will change that.
