Bridgehampton Pumpkin Farm

I wanted to participate in the art fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy victims offered through Daily Paintworks. So I set out with my easel and headed to this farm in Bridgehampton which is located on the south shore of eastern Long Island. The farm touches on Mecox Bay and had clearly been flooded during the storm. Here it was a week later, and the grounds were still very wet and puddled. Two farmers happened to walk out across the field while I was painting, and I overheard them talking about how high up into the farmland the bay waters had come during the storm. They remarked that it was like nothing they had ever seen before.
