In this print, a young woman stands before a plot of green corn in a sun hat, scarf, sweater, and red and white checkered dress. She holds the handle of a gardening tool in one hand and a bucket in the other. She looks directly at the viewer and also into the sun causing her eyes to squint. Robert Duncan is an established artist who began his career making Western American art and later shifted his artistic focus to his family and rural life in his home state of Utah, where this painting was likely inspired. An ode to agriculture is fitting in Kansas City in the heart of the Midwest agriculture belt.
