TGIF, everyone! This weekend's TGIF special is a four-season composite of my favorite tree -- located on DD west of Ashland, Missouri. One 24" x 20" stretched canvas print of "Four Seasons of the Mighty Oak" is available for $109 (regularly $186.77). The TGIF promo runs until 10:00PM Sunday, May 19th, or until the one available canvas is sold, whichever comes first. Last week's TGIF special only lasted an hour. Have a great weekend!
That groundhog really blew it this year. Not only did spring not come early this year (as he predicted), it arrived about six weeks later than normal! But it's mid-May now, and the waited for season has finally arrived.
"Barn in Wild Turnips"
These photographs were taken in Hartsburg, just north of Peace Church. The owner of the barn had commented to me last winter that I didn't have any images of his barn among my work, and invited me to take some anytime I wanted. It's such a charming little barn, nestled against the bluffs, that I couldn't resist! The old Allis-Chalmers WD45 sits nearby, resting up. This field was planted in turnips last fall, and they went to seed -- which provided a sea of tiny yellow blooms in the spring.
This pasture is along a route that I travel almost daily. I get a kick out of how often the horses are at the fence, necks stretched, nibbling on the grass as far as they can reach. Maybe wanting what's just beyond our grasp isn't strictly a human trait -- what do you think?
