“Farm Neck is an exceptionally beautiful place to experience as a golfer. At first, I painted the course as a golfer plays it, but I was soon seeing it as an artist, reveling in many unusual views. Multiple times I found myself out of bounds in my Ranger Cart as it constantly beeped at me to return on course.
As darkness fell many months and landscapes later, I found and painted the warm interior glow of the gazebo, with a new appreciation of how special a place Farm Neck is.”
