This is one of my favorite images and in print. I spent about 70-80 hours on this painting, sitting out behind the farmhouse studying the details. Richard Hendrickson was born in Bridgehampton in 1913, and grew up on his family farm. Beside his duties as a farmer collecting eggs, milking cows and cutting hay he was a record holding ’80-year member’ of the Weather Service’s Corps of Cooperative Observers, a network established in 1890 to help track meteorological data, usually consisting of daily maximum and minimum temperatures, snowfall, and 24-hour precipitation totals, required to define the climate of the United States and to help measure long-term climate changes.

This view is taken from the rear of the old farmhouse or the side looking west.  The house still looks much the same today, a testament to the new owner who prefers to leave the property much like the farm as it always was.
