This one's difficult to describe----a watercolor painting of a woman's figure--the woman appears as a scarecrow----in a desolate landscape. In the mat below the artist has written a poem titled "Seventh Year Prayer of a Sandhiller Widow". It reads: "(God, in a mood created the wind, which slowly rolls the Sandhills in...)/God! The mellon vines this year, like six before, are dried and seared.../and God! The wind has slowly rolled these hills back over my crops and soul!/Oh God! I ask, above this wind in these plum bushes...."Where have I sinned?" (signed) Earl Jones"

There being no listing for an artist by the name Earl Jones, this is a mystery. One wonders if perhaps the work might have its origins in western Nebraska, where the Sandhills are a geographic point of interest.

The work itself and the large mat are clean and wall-ready. Measurements 12 1/4" by 17 1/2" inside the mat opening and 22 1/2" by 25" framed.
