Great bay Beauty

On a breezy day I can smell the earthy scent of Great Bay farm from the front steps of my house. I love it, to me it smells like New England. It's only a mile down the road and has 110 milking Holstein cows and 110 young livestock. It's been here since 1895 and has been run by five generations of the Weeks family. Allen Smith currently carries on the tradition and was kind enough to let me explore the property to sketch and photograph.

Todays post is a sketch I did of one of the Holsteins. I look forward to returning with the seasons with my sketchbook and paintbox.
