Covered In Green - Ruth Andre

"Covered In Green"
4.5"x4.5" Oil and Wax on Paper
by Ruth Andre

When things go wrong and then go right,  you then know you are having a special experience. While traveling through Washington we had a flat tire. We were pretty much in, what looked like, the middle of no where. We stopped at a farm and took a look at the tire and then started to call for service. As we looked around we realized we had stopped at an alfalfa farm and we were surrounded by acres of very green alfalfa fields. It was a gorgeous sight and one I will never forget. The young farmer that owned the property said he had 3,000 acres all planted in alfalfa. Whew! This fellow also went to work changing  our tire and would not take payment of any kind, no money, no dinner, nothing. He said he just wanted to help. It took a couple of days to get the right tires ordered but we ended up enjoying the area and may have missed seeing this beautiful spot without the tire mishap. 
It has been, "A Painting Day".
