Crop Duster

On the way to Spokane, we stopped in a small town called "Ritzville." The town was definitely not "puttin' it on the Ritz," so to speak. There was a butcher shop that advertised "custom killing," a largely abandoned main street, and this airplane hangar. The field next door was advertised as the "Airport" for Ritzville, so I of course dubbed it Ritzville International. Though not visible from this angle, this plane had crop dusting nozzles lined up in rows underneath the wings.

The picture is very nostalgic. I've actually worked on planes of that vintage and in that environment. Excellent job. When this painting becomes available for sale, I would like to buy it.
