Amish Sheep Farm

As I drove around the New Willmington, PA farm country I turned onto a gravel road, thinking it was a public road as it had a street sign. The gravel road ended at this Amish farm. The view was so lovely I had to ask permission to paint it. The wind was very brisk, making it difficult to paint while holding onto my straw hatbrim (to keep the sun out of my eyes), the easel (to keep it from blowing over) and put the brushes to a vibrating canvas. After stuggling for a couple of hours I finished up the painting in my car. Then, later worked on it in my studio. 9" X 12" Oil on canvas board $350
