It was hot and humid today, pre thunderstorm, and Mary and I drove along some back roads in search of a spot to paint. The sun was strong and the distance hazy. The owner of the fields told us that hemp was planted here. Later a deer crossed the field, and then a bear and her two cubs came out of the trees. Everything was very green, and I wanted to capture some variation in the greens, from the blue green distance, the clump of trees in shade, to the fresh yellow green of the young shoots lit by the sun.
