Where is Robert on Day 3?

Summer in Little Egypt

Summer in Little Egypt

 

Robert was painting in an area known as “Little Egypt.”  It is near  the small town of Preston.  At the end of the 19th century the crops failed in the surrounding area so people came to “Little Egypt” to get grain.  It was compared to the Biblical Egypt and that was how it got it’s nickname. Robert loves this area.  While Robert was painting the neighbor came out and told him that this particular farm was where Ezra Taft Benson was born and raised.  Ezra Taft Benson was Secretary of Agriculture during the Eisenhower Administration  and was also  13th President of the LDS Church.

Where in the World Plein Air Show has been fun.  For more information about how to purchase these paintings or to see Robert’s videos  click here.
