More Oxford Yellow Fields and Wildflowers

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

Late night last night, long day as well. This field is now almost all green and readying for the hay baler. The yellow and red flowers are now in seed, dropping next year's beauty to rest in the soil until the winter rains and spring warmth return them once again to blossom. Life cycles.

We had some needed rain last night and the skies are overcast. When I drive to work these days, the dawn is breaking and the dark is moving more toward the edges of things. In a few weeks time, I'll be able to drive both to and from work in the light ... and summer will be here.

Enjoy your day!

Lovely look to the fiend! Great colors in this.

You always sound so busy. I am in awe of all that you get accomplished. Enjoy!

I love how we get to see similar scenes in different light and different parts of the seasons. I particularly like the colors in this one and the fact that you repeated the warm color in the one tree in the background to balance out the warm colors in the foreground. Beautiful painting.

Summer has arrived here with a vengeance -- high 80's and quite humid. The air conditioning is now on!!

Try to pace yourself as much as possible dear friend.
Big hugs,
Lorraine
