My good friend and I were on our way to a grocery shopping trip when she spied this hay field. The freshly bundled hay bales announcing a hard day of work for a local farmer. I asked her to pull over so I could get a few pictures.
She not only pulled over, but she wanted to commission me to do a painting of said field. I enjoyed every minute of this painting. The bales are more stagnant in real life, so I had to change that up a bit for the composition's sake. My friend is rather literal, so I didn't have as much creative license in the composition area. But I had fun with mixing color and brushwork, which I think comes through in this piece.
