Bad Haircut

bad haircut oil on canvas 8x10"

not me but this hedge...
every fall,a tractor comes in,
to cut all the hedges surrounding the farmers fields,
luckily he didn't do a good job cutting these in front of our house,
i get caught by the light shining through these last leaves of fall...
had to go outside and feel it.
i love hedges they contain so much life,
damn those electric fences...

Rob, these last 3 are awesome. The one of your lane is the favourite. Painting inside seems to have brought out new vision in you, but I think you have painted outside so much that all these scenes are imprinted on your brain! Beautiful work Rob (and we missed the snow too - keeping fingers crossed we get to see some).
