A Year on a Farm The Seasonal Landscapes of Grant Wood
I realized that all the really good ideas I’d ever had came to me while I was milking a cow. So I went back to Iowa. --Grant Wood--
What is going on here? What time of year is it? How can you tell? Are there any colors that make you feel hot or cold? What are the different parts of the painting? Where in the painting do your eyes focus? What is in the front of the painting? How did the artist make it look like it was in the front?
