It's been a beautiful spring here in Glastonbury. This week at Horton's Farm, they were dusting off the tractors, preparing to plow the fields. Just after I started painting, the green John Deere was called into service. But fortunately it returned to pose for me after a couple of hours. I like the contrast of the old and new tractors. I guess painting is generally all about finding and balancing contrasts -- color, value, even subject matter.
