I was admiring the view out of the smallish window of an airplane when I had no choice but to do my best to capture that moment. It was awkward considering I had an aisle seat and was staring past a mother and her young daughter, but I'd never let awkward get in the way of a painting. The mother was worried that her daughter was in my way, but I told her not to worry, as I like a challenge sometimes. There's something about the way the sunset and clouds look when you can't see any land among them. It's very mesmerizing. The horizon looks as if it is going infinitely to the left and the right of the sun and there's nothing in the light's way to impede it.
This is almost the opposite. There was no sky in view, only miles of farmland as far as the eye could see. I must admit on this one I snapped a picture on my cell phone and then did it later (on another flight, in the airport, who knows!) I've always loved the colorful grids that farmlands make when you see them from above.
