Back on the Farm
I like going out to Sue's place to paint. She has seven acres in the country with a barn, an old chicken coop, some woods, a stream, a pasture and a stunning view of neighboring farmland. I am mostly drawn to the barn; I love its shape, but I have painted her manure spreader and a few of her other outbuildings. I was at Sue's place last fall when I needed a larger picture of the steer who was munching in the pasture and I climbed through the electrified fence to get one. Later she told me the steer was a bull and it might not have been the safest thing to do. I thought all bulls had horns so it hadn't occurred to me he that he wasn't neutered.
On Monday it was another view of the barn that interested me.
