In 2012 I was visiting family in Fosston Minnesota.
A Summer’s Day in July 2012
Here, I was sitting under a tree in the shade looking at those hay bales.
Every day there was something new in the scenery. This green tractor was perfect for a farmland watercolor.

I saw the tractor again the next day with some sort of red rake-like piece.
Here, my cousin Karen was pulling weeds, so I got the chance to paint her in the field with her prized corn.
Suddenly, there was a heavy shower that didn’t last long. When it stopped raining, the sky opened up to an intense blue with big fluffy violet clouds.
I woke up early to paint the sunrise.
Swallows were flying around in circles in the early morning and disappeared as soon as it got a bit warmer with the rising sun.
In between painting, root beer floats, great food and company, we all did some stone painting and had an open air painting session too. We enjoyed every second.
