Of Corn and Pistachios

Yesterday at the Fort, while waiting for the main sketch of the pumpkin patch to dry, I did this small sketch in the pocket Moleskine.  It shows the very tall corn….. it’s at least 10 feet tall.  I forgot to note the variety.

I worked on a non-location sketch of the World’s Largest Pistachio.  I asked for our little caravan to stop outside Alamogordo, New Mexico to see this bit of Americana.  I composed the view but didn’t finish a sketch while there.

And, yes, we bought some bags of pistachios to bring home.
