Winter grains, I’m not sure whether it’s wheat or rye, creates a mass of almost obscene green in the fields along Minervaville. It’s a riotous green that’s much darker and more intense than the light yellow green of the new spring foliage in the woods.

The changes, both subtle and large, in the color and light are one of the things that I find most fascinating about painting the same landscape regularly.
