Here are two paintings I did in the studio of a scene I love. Something so simple as grass, grown and cut, all orderly and so satisfying. I see the influence of my formalist art school years, many years ago – simplifying the elements and enjoying the lines of the new green grass, alternating with the lines of the cut hay. The strong compositional elements of the hay fields are an awesome display of mankind’s mark on this earth.
