I was amazed at how warm this cold winter's day looked. This week's painting is of the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center's Swine Unit. I drive past it every day to and from work and it always fascinates me. Early in the morning the pigs get fed so they all huddle around to eat. I'm amazed each time I see them as to their large size. Living and working in such a technology driven society can make you forget that our real success depends on farming. Without agriculture most of the last 5,000 years would have come out very differently. This is painting number 1 in my agriculture series of paintings and number 11 in my series of small weekly paintings.
