Maple Syrup

7x5 oil on panel
Maple Syrup!  This was our first year giving it a go.  It was interesting learning the process and seeing it all come together.  Taking this sweet water and boiling it down into this sweet sticky nectar was, well............ pretty damn sweet!   Talking to people who have done it before said it was fun.  It took 2 days, 10 gallons of sap,  and buttload of patience to produce this one jar O fun.   Well worth it!

Sounds like a lot of work, but well worth the effort to end up with some natural syrup and a beautiful painting.
