Under the Corndigital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2006

It is not uncommon to see a single row of corn as a barrier between the road and the berry fields. I don’t know why that is – I can’t imagine it provides that much of a windbreak – perhaps it is tradition – like the rosebush at the end of a grape row (so I thought).

I just happened to notice pickers yesterday with heads barely visible – essentially under and behind the row of corn.

There were many other pickers joining them. The colors kind of just happened – but in some ways I feel they are more representative of the type of day and weather than a photo would have been.

For art prints of this new digital painting, please email:  – thanks.
