With all the rain we've been having, our farmers have had a time returning to the fields in order to cut and bale hay. This weekend with its intense heat, however, seems to have dried the fields enough for that activity to begin again.

These haybales are in one of the many fields near our home. The background trees are a bit bluer in my painting (dang scanner), but the sunlight and heat, blue skies and circling birds are all very real and part of our country drives.

Thank you all for your most kind comments on my display and sales. It was fun, but it did take all of yesterday to recover from the heat! LOL

It's off to work for another week ...Take care!

Lovely Lin -- I can never achieve 3-D or 2-D or even roundness! Love the colors and the angles.

Take it easy this week -- it takes more than a day to get over all that you did.

I love the round hay bales and how you have them receding in the painting. Perfect colors!!! Super job!!

Have a great day...relax a bit!

Oh Lin these are so well done with such a light touch and just enough background depth!
