This wheat field is located on Rt 80, at the intersection with Griffin Rd. I have often traveled on Rt 80 without being aware of this field, but it wasn't until a month ago that I reached it from Griffin Rd, and the view of so much gold captivated me. I didn't know that wheat was grown in the area. I had to paint it!
A week later in the evening, I asked for permission from the person I thought was the owner. He told me it wasn't his anymore but I was welcomed to park on his property. An hour later, when I was finishing the painting, he came out and told me that his family had owned the fields, and the name Griffin was his family name. I always think that a painting has more meaning when you learn a little bit about the place.
