72. Sun Hat

'Sun Hat'
6" x 6" 
oil on gessoboard

Ah, summertime. :) 

I took this photo last summer while visiting my family in Minnesota. 
A blue-shirted farmer under a yellow sun-brella atop a vintage red swather? 
No way could I just drive on by that little scene!
 Btw, pronounced 'swatter', at least by all the farmers I know. ;) 

I've tried painting this before without success, but today my approach was rather loosey-goosey, as I like to say, and I'm much happier with the end result.
