Poole Road Morn – Plein Air – Oil on Linen Panel – 9″ x 12″

I opted to revisit a location. I had been here in May, but thought that late summer would offer an interesting change and challenge. Was I right. As I turned onto this road, I realized that the road was being prepped for resurfacing. A lot of dust was going to happen.

Found this spot and settled in to painting. Interesting day of painting. Only a couple cars rambled through. However, I had several landscapers trucks move through. One of which made slow passes on three occasions. I figured that he was measuring my progress.

About an hour into painting, a rather large dump truck rolled to a stop about twenty yards away. The driver got out of his rig and made his way over to my easel. I thought that it might be someone from the road crew stopping to ask me to leave. Surprised to find out that it was a worker from a sod farm. He was curious and had to see what I was up to. He said he had never seen an actual artist at work and thought that it was real cool. He asked some good, insightful questions. Had a nice conversation. Sort of made my day.
