The sun's radiant heat brings back old memories
Reflections:
....at age 14 - 15 assisting farmers during hay season
.....extreme heat intensified while gathering each bale of hay and tossing it onto a wagon that never stopped moving
....heat, dust, sweat, parch, and twine..
....cold water ,then a summer breeze, how refreshing!!!
...all is good!!!
....the early 60's

Lee Nixon's art is absolutely breath taking. I have a piece of his art work in my dining room and continuously receive comments on it. I plan to one day have a collection of his masterpieces.
