In October I took an unexpected trip to Amarillo, Texas and got to drive through the panhandle of Texas. And one thing that there is no shortage of in that area are oil and natural gas wells. Oil has always been an important part of Texas culture and so I decided to paint this green walkin' beam which is a pump that is used to extract the oil. The crop in the foreground is cotton which has also been an important crop for Texas as well. I'm glad that I had a chance to see these beautiful fields of white cotton it in all their glory.

"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
