|Kittitas Hay, Big Sky. ©2011 Lisa McShane. Oil on Canvas. 36" x 36".|
This is a painting of corn and a hayfield. Kittitas county produces a lot of hay, some of which is shipped to dairy farms near me but a lot goes to Japan through the Port of Tacoma. Three years ago I had the opportunity to tour the hay compacting plant and meet with the owners and our Governor. It was a fascinating look at the transportation and shipping plans for an expanding company.
