Mendon Bale Field

12 x 16 inches, Oil on Gessoboard, - Sold

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.
