This pastoral scene is located in Orange Virginia just up the road
from where I used to live.  I was in a shopping mall show when I
was working on this painting, and an old farmer walked up to look.  
He asked me if I knew what the sack was for.  I replied, I don't
know.  He said its for dropping insecticide dust on the cows as they
walk into the barn to eat.  It was good information for me to know.  
So I called the painting "Dust Sack".
Unfortunately, the nice barn and meadow are no longer there as I
painted them.  There is now a water treatment plant where the
beautiful scene once was.
