Piece description from the artist
Another painting of the same tortured Sugar Maple. I know that grass isn’t usually yellow but it had been 100 degrees F for over a week in the middle of a drought. A soft slow rain finally fell filling the cow wallow beneath the tree, and turning up the chroma on every blade of burnt fescue grass. The eerie afternoon light was as it can only be on such unusual days.
