Even though I now live in eastern Washington, I grew up around the wheat fields of Nebraska - a common sight in the farm belt. These beautiful golden fields translate to any region, the backdrops are the only variable. Their soft waves of amber reach out for miles. The rustle of the dry grain as the heads move together in unison, creates a welcome symphonic earthy song.

|"Harvest Time I" 6x6 oil on 3/4" cradled panel, ©Laura Gable|
This was inspired by a drive I took up the Badger Canyon primitive dirt road out near Kiona, WA when the wheat was tall and golden. The road lay neatly behind me like a ribbon, getting smaller as it ambled away. Our familiar distant hills of lavender against subtle green flat farmlands added a pleasing note of color and softness. This pastoral scene spanned out beneath cottony clouds in an azure sky.
