Plein Air Today Reader Spotlight: William Martin

I painted “Tractors in Red, White, and Blue” during the 2021 Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival. These tractors are located in a field across from Chambers Tractor Sales in Montgomery, New York. There are dozens of tractors there, as well as a practical museum of tractors (the Farmers Museum), which is dedicated to the historical importance of agriculture to the area and reflects the general patriotic spirit of the town. ~ W.M.
