"In this painting, I have created color and space with abstract shapes that represent farmland forms from directly above. In the past, my paintings have more of an oblique angle as one might see from a plane. The variety of colors reflect the weather changes throughout the year...cool grays of winter and the warm tones of the hot summer. These colors and shapes are the elements that farmers contend with in their agrarian lifestyle. I have incorporated my small (little bit) farm scene with a blue sky background over the farmland abstract to
represent how small a farm looks against acres of farmland forms."
