Recently, I have been photographing the haying process at one of our local farms. It brought back many memories from when I was still living at home in farming country. One of the images I captured really resonated with me and so I pulled out a canvas and set to work. The painting pretty much painted itself so I am going to give you just the end result this time.

I was particularly pleased with how my star in the painting came together – the tractor! Here is a close look so you can see that it is just blobs of paint giving you a suggestion of a person on the tractor pulling a hay rake.
Haying time signifies summer in most farming areas in North America. This impressionist style painting holds the desire for coolness in the deep shade of the big tree yet directs our gaze to the heat in the bright sunlight in the fields.
