Sugar Burn - Wellington

12" x 18" - Oil on Paper - $225

I've spent some time in Wellington, FL which is just west of West Palm Beach. Past Wellington there is a lot of Sugar Cane. When they are done harvesting the cane they burn the's a fairly common farming technique that isn't practiced a lot since it's bad for the environment. I was struck by the big clouds of smoke rising from the bright green fields.
