When I was a farmer's wife in Missouri I spent a lot of time out in our growing fields and the horse pastures. I was the breakfast and lunch person that showed up with a warm breakfast and a good lunch for my farming husband while he stayed in the field to disc, plant or harvest, depending on the time of year. The fence rows in farm country are most interesting. You will fine a variety of plants from trailing vines to big trees that only have survived because they were in the fence row and not at the mercy of the tractor's disc or flail mower. The fence line sometimes got stretched as a big tree pushed for space and this painting reminded me of those days walking the fence line and made for "A Painting Day".
