Corn’s Last Stand (a series), part 1: paintings

THE ROBUST GREENS OF SUMMER FADE to shades of dust and rust by late autumn, in the days before the field of corn is abruptly sheared six inches above the soil. Late afternoon sun illuminates a deep sea of reddish stalks that sway gently as their slender, brittle leaves whisper and whistle in the wind.
