On the subject of this painting, Joel writes, “Morrill Farm is one of the few working farms left in Sumner…It is exciting to spend time painting on a working farm, where the seasons and the weather are so important to the life of the farm…Painting on the farm you begin to understand the farmer’s perspectives, his love for the land and the life, and the dedication of his whole family.”
