Comments: Growing up in Iowa I saw lots of ears of corn, which have a beauty their own, a sort of mix of industrial precision with scattered "mistakes". The title came from a farmer neighbor’s wife having brought this particular ear over to feed our chickens after it fell aside from the combine. I mistakenly printed on 7.5 x 11 paper so had to cut it down later to fit the rules, making the image sit a little close to the sides of the paper.
