A sunny morning at Local Roots Farm. The giant stump was shaded by its neighboring tree. The plowed field and hills in the background were in bright sun. By the time I finished this painting the sun had reached around to light the stump. My friend Tina brought me a picnic lunch and took these pictures of me for scale.
I am standing upright in this picture. The grasses were six feet tall. And the blackberries were scratchy. Yes, I'm a tree hugger.
