Title: "Side Hill Spring"
24" x 18" Oil Painting on Stretched Canvas
Private Collection
Guy Nelson's neighboring farm was both an interesting and handy source for doing on-location paintings. As with many of my Paintings, this one also was "roughed-in" one crisp fall afternoon. It was finished some years later in the studio. Guy's work horse was named "Dolly." Because water at the barn was not plentyful, Guy would walk her down to his side-hill spring to drink each day at mid-afternoon. The spring was crudely fenced off to keep his cows from messing it up. He then piped the running water into a wooden drinking trough.
