Cemetery and Corn Fields, VI

2006-12, Oil on Canvas, 22"x 28"


This is a painting that I started in 2006 while teaching a class. Sometimes these pesky students demand so much of my attention that I have a rather difficult time finishing my own work. Quite thoughtless of them. I'm only kidding, I usually just ignore them. Luckily for me I got enough down to be able to finish in the studio.
