Painted: 1996 Published: 1997
The fields have yielded a bumper crop this fall, and the local grain elevator is crowded with trucks and trailers waiting their turn to unload. After a long and tiring day, the farmers are anxious to get home, but they also welcome this chance to relax for a moment with a cup of hot coffee, to chat about crop prices and perhaps trade the latest gossip. “The boy and his dog have tagged along with his dad,” Terry Redlin remarks, “just as I remember doing when I was a kid. I didn’t understand what the conversation was all about, but it sure was exciting to hang out with grownups.” Overhead a flight of Canada geese are also at the end of their day.
