Ima Lee's Barn

On Sunday, I went back out to Mrs. Sorenson's farm to paint. After she arrived from church, she drove her car down to where I was painting and stepped out in her Sunday dress and a walking cane to see my work. It was chilly and she didn't wear a coat, so couldn't stay long, but she still had a lot to say and even chided me about my beard. She doesn't approve. 
I've always been impressed by folks who have worked the land all their lives, and how easily they adapt to hard times. She has numerous health issues but plows ahead...no pun intended.
