Fairfield artist Diane Hausmann, owner of Hausmann Studio, is at work on an oil painting depicting the drilling of the Spring Hill 14-34-27-6 oil well on Halverson Road, near Bynum. For inspiration, Diane is using a photo taken on December 3 of a drilling rig from Patterson Drilling Services that was at work on the well. Diane is donating the work, which will be auctioned at an upcoming private event. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to an account set up for Lyndsey Tikalsky.
