Good Harvest Released By Glenn Beasley

Artist Glenn Beasley has just released this new work titled "Good Harvest" which will soon be on display locally in the Little Rock area. This is an 18 x 24 oil on linen depicting a hard working lady harvesting her crop under a broiling noonday sun in the late 1930s. Glenn said " For me, the straw hat steals the scene and communicates that it was very hot that day. This is the only figure I have painted where you do not see the face.

Not a farmer as a hobby but by necessity, the backbone of rural America in the recent past." Glenn plans to include other similar works that reflect rural farm life in the 30s & 40s from a simpler time depicting family and work life from this period.

It was “Two Girls Decorating a...
